Culture and art of social problems

 

Contemporary art way of discourse should be according to the specific expression of social problems, this is to avoid the contemporary art become no specific targeted "general", "empty", "therefore", "empty" narration, and this kind of "empty" narration must be some puzzling or far-fetched "since said the words". Contemporary art for the "details" is at the scene of the social life, cultural life (public domain) appear problem, culture and art of social problems related to the people to further improve. And is involved in the further perfect, it is necessary to determine the progress of contemporary humanistic ideas and position. The "details" "specificity" is that it is in a particular aspect of social life, cultural life, it is related to the people of a certain or some specific aspects of the "life" of "damage", so the "details" is not "general", "empty" and "therefore", "everything". It can be either in the form of sociology (social work), can also be a cultural (culture), but the sociological problem in nature and culture, and cultural problems will correspond to certain social problems. The BBC did at the end of 2003 China month feature program, not only play the underground films and social problem in China, also reported on the phenomenon of Chinese culture and the status of the fringe artists, without a thorough understanding of contemporary Chinese experience, I'm afraid it is difficult to experience and the history of the "orientalism" carve-outs, so use some historical experience to judge the European era of kafka. And in the experience of "orientalism" judgment, kafka era of European history will only be watching west reference surface. Today, in the context of global culture, the west against the surface of the Chinese culture, whether it is what the motives, for disadvantaged RACES is a have intention to not intentional of colonial discourse. Because, orientalism is strong in the west race against vulnerable racial discourse formation on the surface of the east, and by now, it has not been fundamental to break in the east. So it will continue to make the weak ethnic drown in the new surface of orientalist discourse and make east in modern times is still difficult to become a cultural awareness of modern people.

 

Culture and art of the social problem is always the result of the long-term effects of culture, it can be said to be the cultural problem form of sociology and culturology can cause of sociology, sociology of it can be said to be the cultural root of the problem. Such specific issues involved in the person's "life" of all aspects of the physical, mental, and spiritual. So, for the "details" of contemporary art can be said to a variety of, as long as it is with the person's "life" of the body, psychology, sociology, cultural issues concerning the spirit, is the focus of contemporary art objects. In the specific creation, by creating some items (image symbols, often comes from the social life, culture life) of a particular relationship, rationally hint "details" damage to people's life (because of the "rational" is in the image on the basis of "sensibility", "rational", and is associated with the dignity of life, so it implies the power of "sensibility", can say is a kind of perceptual "rational"), which expressed for the "details" humanistic position, the resulting concrete works of specific concept of cultural critique.

 

"In the" details "concrete narration" of the requirements of contemporary art, culture and art of the requirement of the social problems to overcome the traditional art and modern art of "aesthetics" for the demands of contemporary art of culture dislocation (for contemporary human spirit further liberated inefficiencies); The requirements of specific problems to overcome the history of the avant-garde art philosophy dreamily (is actually the metaphysics somniloquy, caused by the can art refers to the limitless); "Detailed narration" overcome the post-modern art in the face of "details" vague expression (caused by the can art refers to the extensive social). "Details" signifier "detailed narration" is actually the art "context" can refer to the art in the context of the specific issues, the art can refer to from this point to regain specific problems, and suggest the limitations of the culture behind the problems, the significance of the resulting art specific concept of cultural critique. Art has the power of culture.

Art and social relations

The artist is the producer of spiritual product, the final results of the spiritual production - art, is to enter the world we live in, to communicate with certain groups in society, to realize the value of the value of works of art and the artist. This is the art and social relations. Art produced in the specific social background, and ultimately through the artist's refining and processing in a special form of expression and return to the society. Through painting art development history of page we can always find its place in the shadow of society, feel the spirit of the culture and people's lives, art reflects the society, the social impact on the art. Society constantly moving forward, so that it can always constantly for artists, art supplies of raw materials, to produce more update art form and content of art. Art and social relations since the emergence of the art has never is not likely to rupture, is the research on the relation between art and social theories and schools of thought contend, influences and decides the people understanding of art and social patterns and Angle. Today, when it comes to art into the society, we must mention the relationship between art and market. To enter the market has a long history of art, is not a market economy is born in art market phenomenon. In China in the Ming and qing dynasties era, there is one of the yangzhou eight eccentrics of banqiao for his paintings "RunGe", this is a typical example of art to enter the market more examples of before that there are not too mature.

 

When commodity economy and the development and market is complete, the relationship between art and market are very close. No matter what, the meaning of art and the artist always exists in the correlation between reality, history, tradition and, although we don't have to say economic law mandatory dominates the artistic conception and behavior, but art and the environment, the art is closely connected with social contact, is undeniable in the era of commodity, artists are subject to social utility atmosphere, tempted to drive to promote the pressure of social economy, strive to make their own ideas with the public world and economic law, is also very natural, this commodity economy highly developed society today, some works of art is not become popular after production, it is popular to produce, in order to win the public, to gain market effect and commercial interests. So with the development of economy and the rise of industrial civilization, the spread of art forms and ways are also great changes have taken place. Movies, concerts, painting and calligraphy exhibition, popular fiction, etc., these commercial art behavior characteristic is obvious, they are no longer just simply in order to meet the spirit of the senior people enjoy is the main purpose, and to obtain more economic benefits is also the art to the key factor. High art to the civilian and commercialization has become an unstoppable trend, the impact of this trend for the development of art can be said to be very complicated, need to have a dialectical point of view to treat this trend. But social influence on art never so strong as it is today. This may be the cause of the development of human civilization to a height. Society is developing forward in, one of the arts as a social ideology inevitably affected by its product, because of the change of social influence and lead to art form, and artistic form extremely subject matter content changes from one side also reflects the change of the society. All about art and social relationships, in fact is the art and social relationship as an opportunity of discourse mode and methodology of the debate. Why is a kind of cultural studies more accords with the practice of China's cultural interpretation? It's first get from what is culture research.

 

Generic in the sense of cultural studies, as a specialized term, especially in the 1950 s is produced in the UK field of study, the first formally established research institutions is Birmingham contemporary culture research center (CCCS). As a research field, the discipline nature of cultural studies, the research objects and research methods are variable, which is its charm, cultural studies is a kind of discourse construction, it doesn't have a single origin, although in the first time it was named the cultural studies, some of us is to have a certain position, it is always a system composed of the construction of uncertainty. Trajectory, it has many many people once and is through these trails into the cultural research field. It is formed by a series of different construction methods and theory of position, and all these positions in the debate. Break from the culture of the fixed qualitative theory, cultural studies opens up for himself a is different from the essence of socialism and is different from the essentialism of road of the research, it is keep the distance with postmodernism and deconstructivism, cultural studies is not advocated no essence, but no autocracism essence. Cultural studies are in the open theory field of vision at the same time, there is still position and value measurement. Art is a language that is more common than rational argument, there is no art society, without no society of art, art is the outcome of an ideology of human beings, all human society and the environment the brand mark, on the one hand, art highlights and performance with the change and development of the society, but on the other hand, society is ever-present in a subtle influence on the evolution and development of art. Therefore, we can say that art exists in with the social development is inseparable. Art is a kind of image reflects social life, this is just a kind of philosophical reflection, an understanding of sociology. Art if left the existence of society, the art would be tantamount to leave their survival soil, lost it to maintain the source of life and the roots.

 

Art exists in society, it performs the social life, deduce the social development trend, and society is constantly provide art materials for art, also only in the human society environment art development will continue to exist and enriched. A certain social political influence on the artist's concept is most significant, but we can't ignore the other factors in the social environment, such as economy, culture, customs and geographical environment, etc. Economy is the important measure of a society prosperity or not. Economic prosperity will bring huge material wealth to the society, so as to improve people's living standards, people only to meet their own clothing, food and clothing problem, just can have higher spiritual pursuit. So is artist, the artist's life can be divided into two layers: one is the material life and spiritual life or soul. Material life is food and clothing live line, spiritual life is art.

 

In the economic and cultural prosperity of tang dynasty period, our poet is achieving positive, the poetry is majestic, such as li bai's poems, we can always feel the grand momentum of datang in the poem and brilliant achievements, it is because of the poet's life in the material prosperity of the environment, no worries about the poor, only with flourishing life. In the late tang dynasty, the social unrest, economic decline, to see what the poet is desolate and sad, displaced people's court of corruption, thus makes the du fu sorrow and helpless. Different geography and customs culture has a certain influence on the artist's personality. Overall, a northerner disposition optimistic, southerners character is exquisite. Open-minded character of the northern artists always love to create the north style works of art, artists tend to southern delicate depiction and description. So-called northern landscape pie "jing (hao) off (8)" and the southern landscape "dong (source) giant (ran)" is because of its geographical location divided between its represented by the artistic style.

 

Social part shaped the artist's personality, and the artist's personality in the unconscious determines its writing style. Artists to create good work and let the viewer to accept work is never out of society at that time. "Isolated, and the relationship of art no longer life, no matter how it is charming, always want to be a useless toy, is doomed to lose its humanistic value. The artist's social is self-evident, the task of the artist is eternal, but the artist himself is forward in time to the music, so they can't from society, can't abandon reality. With = artists of the world, of course, has great relation with the social. Art originates from reality, higher than the reality, so no matter how artists and bold and unrestrained unruly, devote in art creation, performance, using the whole soul artists of the world will still have their own society. A good image of the art must come from the artist's deep thinking and struggling to explore, and the thinking must be seen in our daily life, feeling, or is inspired by the present life and the deeper thinking of human to the life and to the whole universe.

 

Artists through the problem of the thinking of the abstract or representational form of art, art is life, because there is another world in these works, an artist questioned his own world alone spirit or soul. While the world is not a vacuum in the world and because of the artist's thought, by the great experience of thinking always represents the artist in society and artists as sensitive people's thought and questioning, therefore, the viewer resonance and works of art, touched by the work, because art is actually the shadow is the shadow of a group of the society. Jiang Zhaohe's knave figure seen farmers displaced the suffering of life, feel the infinite sympathy for people's life at that time, this also is the author's feeling and thinking of social reality. When we face the work of art, we may doubt, may even have doubt on the concept of art. In the present this as "postmodern" society, art is "postmodern", is "postmodern" concept. Artists are no longer interested in the sort of grand political subjects, no longer pay attention to how our society is developing, people how to life, everything is self-involved, artist focuses on the private life, is its own unique thinking, there are a lot of life in today's society degenerated and some of the younger generation of erosion life meaningless things. When artists of the world is more and more narrow, art is no longer can be simple to understand, in the art of performance artists of the current caused by the lack of mainstream ideology to guide the social mix, the youth of the depressed, confused mood and anxiety and deep thinking, these feelings and ideas is leap is extremely deep, personal, because maybe only as a living person has no intention to consider and realize these subtle and profound social change, also cannot understand the artist hidden ideology in the works of art, it also led to the modern art cannot be accepted and approved for the society. Different social period of artists of the art of the world is so different, when we see if we live in a society today, found that the original in today's world is so made that originally unprecedented pursuit of material and spiritual emptiness of life, led to the development of the society "absurd" and "nothing". Art to find the subject of performance, from life and artists to seek inspiration in my life, the artist must face the society, to participate in society, and to generalize the technique to the society and express their views, so artists of the world or from the society of his, or on their community a high degree of thinking.

Primitive culture, the classical culture and modern culture

  

From the classical culture to modern culture change of time and changes on the specific cultural content and characteristics of Chinese and western culture is not completely consistent, rather to say China is now the classical culture and modern culture and post-modern culture mixed complex. The existence of this phenomenon is due to the structure of Chinese society. Artists really need this kind of "rush" of the spirit and the spirit of "risk", can't conformity, too, the same. Of course, will inevitably be in the process of creating, the whole society should be allowed and tolerance in the process of creating errors, give more tolerant, more understanding, more help, forming respect creation, value diversity, atmosphere. Artists in the textbook for creative work, more centered and less trouble back at home, the writer's talents full play. Valuable artistic creation was conducted based on national cultural tradition. Cultural creation is the continuation of the original cultural tradition and innovation, is not without foundation of fantasy and curiosity, artistic creation writers need to continue to improve the personal knowledge, enhance the experience of life, improve the understanding of life, also requires writers have "yong as the" courage and courage. Artistic creation should integrate useful thoughts in the Chinese traditional culture value, living art form, so, the writer should strengthen the learning of the Chinese traditional culture. Will inevitably be in the process of literature creation error, the whole society should be allowed and tolerance in the process of creating error, give more tolerance, understanding and help. The specific form of social structure model of culture created by the mixture, made from a variety of vulgar sociology of language since the sexual argues that the lack of appropriate and realistic social context, unable to form accurate effective reflection of the social reality (including indirect reflect), because of our social development form and cultural form in the modern transformation of time and change the specific cultural content characteristics, not the kind of western progressive layers of propulsion, interlocking logic of the context. Dig deep and refined beneficial thought spirit value and draw lessons from a life of art form, will be its in literary creation. To worship and religious attitude, with pride, draw on beneficial cultural factors, achieve the whole, to enhance the vitality of cultural creation provides a continuous nourish.

 

 

 

Insist on advancing with The Times, innovation, combine traditional culture with time spirit and traditional culture with new times breath, creating more full of Chinese characteristics, Chinese style, Chinese style of outstanding works. Art is created by people. People in cultural development is the key and the most active factor. Literary creation is a need to create enthusiasm, creative impulse special mental work, creative spirit. Whether the writer has enough creativity, whether contains new cultural creation in his works, in the very great degree is decided by the writer quality. To enhance the vitality of cultural creation, we must constantly improve the personal knowledge, increase the experience of life, improve the understanding of life, so the creativity of "hand". Volumes of the ancients used to say, reading, travelling. The writer learn from books, to learn from the masses, learn from practice, constantly strengthen self-improvement, sheer willpower, promote the moral sentiment, gathering the personality power. The writer should be thought of the wise. Must be good at see essence through the complicated world, from practice to create summary refining, the original feeling into his own work, make work has the new connotation, new creation, new, new heights. Excitation of literary creativity, but also requires the writer have "yong as the" courage and boldness of vision.

 

 

 

After western structuralism, structuralism and post-structuralism thoughts such as the emergence of a society into a consumer society that is closely related, and commercialization in the form of a symbol of capitalism ubiquitous points cannot leave, while in China since the 90 s surface similar commercialization cannot conceal its social form and the multivariate mixed on the cultural forms. Therefore, using one or a simplification of western theories to explain China's complex cultural forms, ragged and distorting. This is what people generally feel a part of art one-sided ponder form language and lens flu leads to the lack of historical and humanistic care. Cultural creation is the continuation of the original cultural tradition and innovation, is not without foundation of fantasy and curiosity. As Leo Tolstoy said, "the right path, draw your predecessors have done, and then go forward". Newton wrote in the letter to hooker, "if I see farther, it is because standing on the shoulders of giants". Where we enhance the vitality of cultural creation, not standing on the shoulders of a giant, but standing on the shoulders of a nation's excellent cultural tradition. Literature on any value creation is based on the traditional culture. Chinese culture has a long history, profound, is bearing the weight of the culture gene of the Chinese nation, is the spirit of the Chinese nation's unique identifier, which is the most profound broad Chinese literature thoughts, emotions, culture, language and art foundation. Inheritance and carry forward traditional national culture, is our bounden historical responsibility. Under the trend of economic globalization, more sober understanding historical significance and realistic value of the traditional culture of our country, stick to cultural position, enhance cultural awareness and cultural self-confidence.

Yuan Chu Chen The artist subjectivity

The artist subjectivity

 

Discussion of artist main body, the artist is refers to the artist's own subjectivity, art for the intervention of the society. Throughout the history of art, is expressed through the anxiety of the main body, avant-garde and post-modern art history, for example, assume that in the art and life practice various methods to get rid of the illusion of landscape, to find the real "subject". But it is questionable whether they so more confident on their own way, they may find the body of the cartesian sense, or Sartre, as the main body of "intervention". Find a feeling of "existence". This kind of "existence" itself is very suspicious, don't forget their opposition to "landscape" is also positive to create. And the surrealist just to close the cover of "unconscious" unconscious body, but essentially and unconscious little relations, is actually the signifier and the signified of linguistic game, the linguistic symbol "unconscious", and then put into work, let a person feel works is about the "unconscious". From now on and the "unconscious" in a relationship. If a "professional" and "division" caused the human gradually lose the integrity, perhaps can let a person feel very abrupt and wonder. It is really true: professional let a person from local to meet one of the world; And division of labor, let a person separated from the overall relationship between subject and object.

 

According to Hegel's aesthetic system, human after losing to the understanding of the relationship between subject and object and judging, to be able to talk about the main body of subjectivity, namely in philosophy under the general characteristics of the spirit of the soul of the creator; The essence of objectivity, is refers to the object properties. To distinguish it from the objective existence of the sheer, Hegel thinks the objectivity of art is that even if the artist inspired the real content (meaning) there can be no part remains within the main body of the heart, the periodic mass main human behave more intense, the subjectivity of the individual performance is weaker. This is because, the human social mechanism has been highly mechanized, and individuals like parts of a machine, in fact, in our society has also compared individuals to a society of the screws. In the concrete practice of professional and division of labor. Today, we are all very natural to accept the "professional" and "division" of the facts. But to fully revealed; And reveal the way is: the selected content (meaning) of the common soul and entity is very clear, its itself is a complete individual image, and the whole work of image should be perfusion in the inside of the soul and entities. Based on this, the complete reunification of the Hegel thinks the objectivity and subjectivity, the two aspects of the subject and object fully fuses in together, make the two aspects of external and antagonistic to each other, no longer is the main body is not the same as the individual and the self, is not to emphasize the back in the artist's individual life of art, or in the world. The subject is more complex, the concept from the cartesian cogito subject to lacan's unconscious body difference is very big. What is the difference between them? This is not I want to discuss, concepts and methods are not what I'm concerned about most. The most important thing is that they think are geared to the needs of the "subject". "Back to the main body" is actually very simple, creative and thinking for it, in all cognitive and perceptual to bypass it.

 

Positive, self unified main body, the difference in the emptiness of the subjective, the key is we have to face it, "art" is always want to clearly present some characteristics, and "subject" reminder to face all of life. When talking about the ideal at the same time talking about desire, in discussing the reality and illusion is discussed. In the face of rational face emotional at the same time. This stalemate than brief clear thinking is closer to the true today. Chinese avant-garde art before the mid - 1990 - s can be basically clustered avant-garde in history, that is, to challenge the political authority through art to shape their own value. The artist involvement in social subjectivity is very obvious. The original is not the same as "novelty". Hegel acknowledge artist originality is the unique charm of art, is a distinctive personality, but against the "novelty". Hegel said: "think the original makes strange things, but specific to a particular artist and no one can understand the contents. If so, the original is just a kind of very bad individual characteristics". Also said: in the art of concrete practice, people often think, witty and humorous and funny creation is full of originality. Actually otherwise, because in their creation, the subject is free, is "isolation", he is not based on some rules to dissolve into the object itself, while China's post-modern art by critics as the elitist ideology also has the function of art, its social effect have also been put in an important position.

 

Even in western art is seen as a pure form of abstract art, modern art in China has been rejected, its starting point is a political ideology and non-artistic itself, the pure forms as a kind of struggle, change means strictly no formalism, only college. In China in the 80 s because it is expressed the thought of liberalism, is synonymous with liberalism, strictly speaking it is not a formalism. The lack of aesthetic modernity in China, the Chinese contemporary art has always been subjective elements typically lack of artists, expectation and requirement of Chinese contemporary art value depending on its true public situation, social problems, and people are suffering, attention to form, cultural issues and problems of contemporary art. Often interrupt reasonable process, the development of any opening, any progress, any result, a lot of multifarious witty and emotional hash together ", which is the individual features in object. So, in essence is the separation of subject and object. Visible, Hegel is no "novelty". Fourth, real originality is not deliberately hidden deep content. Hegel thinks, in the artistic practice (including the creation and appreciation), some people think that the content of the works by more profound, more subtle, the more inconvenience people to meditate, the more reflect the artist's original, this view is wrong.

 

Art is not for the creation subject itself but for us, for the general audience view and admire it. Artists create works of art, therefore, should be able to let the people understand, accept, otherwise, is hardly its artistic value. Specifically, the artist's subjectivity in performance, how to know the world, how to describe the world, how to describe the artists to think the world is, how to balance the groups and individuals, how to balance the reality and the subconscious. The problem specific discussion is more complex, what first subjectivity, there is a view, think now lack of subjectivity: since modern times, the world's performance to come out strong human will, and the fundamental of will is war of nature, its concrete representation is a variety of science and technology progress. The huge machine has become a symbol. Think about that crazy age, human not only announced the death of god in the philosophy, but also in the field of natural science in the evolution theory, social science has emerged in the objective materialism of marxism as the main representative and the construction of social evolution. No matter what kind of thought, human beings are trying to put the human in the center of the world and the master of the position. This is perhaps the subjectivity of the human history is one of the most intense group stage, but the main body of mass may be no sign of subjectivity. Full manifestation of subjectivity in the object must accord with certain regularity. Because the subject was given to objects and is a kind of nature of this nature will manifest in the object, it must comply with the laws of the object itself show phase and principles. To this, Hegel said, such as sculpture, architecture, painting, music, art, as a performance object, all their respective art style design and processing requirements are different. The artist as a subject, is based on their mood and imagine the inner essence of life to create works and foreign minister. Hegel thinks the originality should, therefore, is an artist inner life and apparent self as creation subject inner mind show the characteristics of phase, it should not be vague and ambiguous, and must be real and true apparent and phase.

Everyone said the west is a everyone satisfied to singular palace

 

Everyone said the west is a satisfaction to the singular palace, everyone praise words I don't own. Sometimes I think: to obtain buddhist scriptures is good the difficulties, or you don't have that much story. People to the west a look disappointed, suffering, everywhere, all the pain I don't think of others. Every nation absolutely believe his great, who dare not say will be killed by his same scold dead. Each people all think that life is better elsewhere, that is not his own bad but god unfair. Butterfly dance in gold ZanHua, gold ZanHua in sigh, you are so beautiful, still can fly. The butterfly not phonate, striking the stem on the crawler. I not only beautiful, but also eat your flowers. Spring breeze wash the green earth into the earth. Head feather light vigil on the grass, the birds cry spread all rivers, here we rely on to reduce the temperature of the body, slightly closer to each other. Who used to know the majority of people in suffering! The closed lips only shows its secret pain. It to religion, my dear, out of a fluid of all mankind is bitter. This today, sprinkled on the ground, but the past regrets and future it fear, what kind of flowers will quote you tomorrow?

 

Which one is tomorrow! Ah, even I myself are afraid of tomorrow! In one hundred million, has been return to enter yesterday. Because we say that he is right. That quickly through time to squeeze out the grape juice, from it, all the people had been drunk. In fact he is wrong. Go away! All their dusky world and eatable parts are right. What do you sleep have to do with right and wrong again. Now we appreciate new summer flowers, in before people have a good time just by the way, like in the house secretly sweating. But we have to make up a lie under the earth, into reserves the right to let oneself change. Heartily enjoy everything. We have not drowned in the mud, return to the bottom in the dust, have no wine no song singer without sex no warm. In fact is not mad, for the coffee is hot, garlic is cold but optimistic. Successful career in middle age, completely kindness undead and convergence. Hide and seek game chan for the fun of the ground and bitter taste, joint a lot of milk and sugar, soft the sadness of life love and grief. What I the same, is freedom have said there is no freedom, no heaven bathhouse coffee sugar ban, the air caused the weak but clear hard water. The thoughts and feelings to adjust floating at the top of the warm color of the ceiling shook violently, allowing the whispered conversation to fill those thinking of their own.

 

, dark sky, quickly occupied by taupe of withering plants in the chaos of rock on the hill, the fence of poplar in manufacturing of ring, roar infertility summit at the top of the hill, the strong breeze is how terrible. I had to stop the footsteps to listen to the silence of the bird's nest.

 

Take the warmth of the Atlantic and arctic sea of strong emotions, in eclipse revolve in the north coast of Europe, and carving a twisted to the ground with your inner bay. West Asia, a piece of ice with similar big waves accumulated plain. On the mound look more than angel. Run out of a woman in the whole face dust of journey, which one sign of the luggage into a door, where she came from, and where to go? The handsome, young waiter smiled at her, unintentional, but are thought to have love. Which one guest made a delicious dishes do not eat, to leave before the Windows of the trees made her faint sketch, but remember the poor lover leave that remote township in college? But on a computer screen to watch to do more than one action. In a very long hair man's really hard to sit for a while. And never type roll hair woman, my meeting is a columnist of love? The group of geese flying is similar, silent wedge do slightly cut from within the city. Night, some places of the rest of the flower is the destruction of their gradually. Go away, so far, they still let me excited, love the world of process to accomplish the tears drop down, clear and valuable, splashing nozzle to reach the peak of love distance is not far from my experience. From it. Imitate all dialogue script on the pirate ship is red day that day. I believe that the cross from the east sea and arrived in the UK, log in, adventure, change residence, fly to every corner of Europe, to fly to the future of the world every river, extended equation.

 

Look over all the Copenhagen tower buildings, a big house, consider the Baltic sea region and the southern ocean, high-rise buildings, apartments, the sea cry at the edge of the mermaid without thoughts. To no scar, in deep faint dark night and the fluorescence, my responsibility is to enter the forbidden area and review this a person of the world people can enjoy a fairy tale. The use of time is better to use half a carriage to transport sail across the ocean, full of shell channel especially desolate. Then a thin strong soldiers organization in the castle, especially has the character of the prime living, reluctantly gave up warm amorous wife, came to the snowcapped peninsula, quietly looking at the endless waves.

 

Men on the canal when fog early get up together, sleep together in the port colorful when the lights went out. Time to stay in the attic in the small streets around, time and we read fairy tales and embrace the warmth of the history in the car. But deep scars are still on the way, you, to enter in my sentimental feelings, so you just right with your eyes and see the horizon heart that a beautiful cloud. Thinking about the meaning of mind travel?

 

But when meet Russian flaxen hair and leisurely grow facial expressions, I remember her to say at a time. Where is their sad thoughts to the most warm, the most extensive, very pure. My potential consciousness to the door to go outside window, sinking under the Russian snow. Like a rare gold and men praise led to elicit her special smile. In fact a deep autumn is still not in the past. When I read she wavered laughing loudly. At the top of the street spirit more than one hundred times to recite. The definition of east Asia - the cradle, is a fairy tale, the wind began to blow the residual bridge off the snow, each person has a unique aesthetic. People say: I read the memory of childhood, in South Africa a the abyss of time. About time and holy, and the gods, the trees, and life, roads and mud, the desert and the milk. Poor and rich, easy to education of children and has been punished, all love the myth. Everyone try to let him not distant.

 

Ignore the tough like a king kong grasp the enthusiastic mood, in the mind uncomfortable time find the transparent feeling, eyes tears can't stand the look in the bright sunlight. Ignore drunkard is a poignant grief or try delicious, each drop like eat bitterness, rising like to drink wine. Don't do work people are living in a morass of dust.

 

Sometimes tired of reading, I slowly lowered the head, like a rabbit completely boring, meticulously naked in the behavior to feel, each with a brush and shoes, and the body, tapping the cross fingers gently and very carefully the vortex and small bubble, and then touch a woman desires, red lips, men are very careful scrape beard, afraid to hurt a woman tender skin. In each kind of emotional appeal songs and foreign romantic feeling, flying all the way to disturb noisy, end like the struggle, a group of young people are similar to target return to me..

 

In the light of steps before constantly to leave her, vacation pleasure and pain disappeared in old age. Suffering is still. Life is constantly updated river, after integrated into the sea.

 

Whenever at this time, when I feel in the mind is very quiet, can or not, is very low. Look at the small small dust dancing in the breeze in the sunshine, also because this tiny happiness washing to quiet down gradually, to remind the Chinese flowering crab-apple in the balcony, has been in full bloom has failed. Through the golden sunlight beautiful leaf edge. So I often only one love lazy to enjoy an afternoon, looking at the game of others, walk into something, so to end moment with highlights of life.

 

I see: imitation of his ears cut in front, in the interests of the peak, laugh, be counted in the curved neck onion soup. The ocean the other shore is still hungry. It is full of think of writing, and increased, after the completion of painting in the sunlight weather, using the natural feeling of record that fleeting moment spring day. The inferior with a pink, seemed to become a fairy, after on the canvas that dazzling disorderly vision lead, too, is inferior to return to loneliness clear self. So repeatedly.

 

I would like you to remind again, once took those happy, like * *, it is difficult to quit. But I know that dotes on own you and I are temporarily must to savour.

 

Maybe after some days, when our body experience complicates life taste will remain strong, not like bright door outside jumps of butterflies, but like the bees in the sun and rose through and to gain the necessary of life, we need to do so.

Fxperiment of ink painting

 

Experimental ink painting of the edge position, critical spirit and metaphysical point, is self-evident. The so-called test, rather than simply return to classical ink painting "nature and humanity" the pursuit of the ideal of "tao", also is not attempting to western modernism art with Chinese ink painting media as a version of characteristic. Both spirit form is contradictory, its cultural gene is opposite. And that is the meaning of experimental ink painting spirit, abandon the orthodox ink programming techniques, with almost no rules and laws of ink painting technique to express the inner world, disoriented or expression of contemporary social changes, on the anxiety of life, or expression in the modern age, people eager to return to nature, the state's life. Confrontation and collision of the mental state, may be what happens in a experimental ink painting "post-modern" cultural spirit. The experimental ink painting is actually a branch of Chinese contemporary art. If the traditional Chinese literati ink painting is a kind of "ink play", so China's contemporary experimental ink painting in some extent is a kind of serious games. This game requires certain rules, was criticized when it is certain to should have the standard. Cannot follow the standard of traditional Chinese painting, also can not copy the western modern art and post-modern art of standard, and should adopt the standards set by the Chinese contemporary art critic himself otherwise will appear the dislocation of criticism. So I think, to really understand LanZhengHui experimental ink painting, the so-called "mass ink", should be in accordance with the contemporary China's critics experimental ink or the theory of modern ink painting set rules and criticism of the standard to criticize, judge, this just more accurate. About experimental ink or modern ink painting has a variety of criticism,

Contemporary ink painting is in two different cultural mental state of collision: one is the traditional Chinese classical peaceful way of natural nether ink painting, is a kind of western modernism art movement under the capitalist system generated intense reflection of the values of the outlook on life. These two factors generated by the collision sparks is worth people to think about, more than one hundred million people as the whole of China after the "cultural revolution", in his devastated environment, vision of "modern" fantasies and the metropolitan civilization unceasingly, contemporary experimental ink painting expresses the natural rationality (tao) and double exciting implication of humanistic irrational passion. Experimental ink painting of the edge position, critical spirit and metaphysical point, is self-evident. The so-called test, rather than simply return to classical ink painting "nature and humanity" the pursuit of the ideal of "tao", also is not attempting to western modernism art with Chinese ink painting media as a version of characteristic. Both spirit form is contradictory, its cultural gene is opposite. And that is the meaning of experimental ink painting spirit, abandon the orthodox ink programming techniques, with almost no rules and laws of ink painting technique to express the inner world, disoriented or expression of contemporary social changes, on the anxiety of life, or expression in the modern age, people eager to return to nature, the state's life. Confrontation and collision of the mental state, may be what happens in a experimental ink painting "postmodern" cultural essence.

Establish individual ink program from the program to extract the living soul of the traditional painting, to a certain traditional elements to expand and strengthen, the structure of the image is larger, stronger, this is traditional Chinese painting, especially the relatively weak aspects of literati paintings; Tend to be irrational to blame for the principle, performance tends to be rational composition and numerous to Jane. Very important is the tension of structure and the structure itself, or the structure of the inner tension, is not the volume size. If the structure of the inner tension of excavation, has the force of fateful. Strength does not necessarily volume is very big, small size may also have a lot of momentum and strength, the key lies in the tension of structure itself, structure of intrinsic tension. General visual experience, visual perception, still want to have a sense of order, or your performance space how much will a bit level, let everybody would be able to accept some. This aspect can also find again. Then there is Jane in the complex, also worthy of scrutiny. Traditional pen and ink is sometimes unconscious. Experimental ink painting in mid and late 90 s the mainland's most important artistic phenomenon. Of this phenomenon from the editor, curator, reviews, artistic system such as communication, market research, can become an important subject in the research of modern and contemporary Chinese art history. For experimental concept definition and outlook of ink painting, art history, and the relationship between the traditional Chinese painting, the role of in the contemporary Chinese painting development pattern, the art value of contemporary society, etc., so far, there are still many discussions from different points of view, its fierce just reflects an old adage: "we debate the most problem is that we know the least problem". Debate about the experimental ink painting, is in the process of Chinese society, in the face of foreign culture, especially the Chinese culture and art into after the reaction of strong western culture, the more profound cultural tradition, the response to the foreign culture to produce more intense and more long time of collision and running-in. No one doubts that the development of the experimental ink painting is not a theoretical model and ideal expectations, but a reality exists the phenomenon of more than 20 years of art history, and become the important reference of the development of contemporary Chinese ink painting, no matter how we see experimental ink painting, it has become a research of Chinese contemporary art history of art is unable to avoid. The problems involved in art history research methods.

Art history and history, all want to ask questions, solve problems, only generalize, review is not a breakthrough. Discussions and debates about the experimental ink painting, which indicates that the art history of the problems, the openness of the art lies in the artists of different times for its creation to the history of classical and specification put forward questions and try to answer the question of history. Art history is not only the pattern of inheritance and innovation, of course, the continuation of history and the change of history and language, also reflects the artists an era for their social and environmental change of feeling and comments. If we can calmly look at the history of new art phenomenon, and distance to an objective attitude to study them, maybe we can in a bigger view look at the overall picture of contemporary art. A variety of cultural landscape art attitude and tolerance will make us more inclusive in the comparative study of art history research and the fusion of horizon. Beyond the "binary opposition" or the idea of "dual division", between the "black" and "white", there is a vast "grey area", namely the black and white blend and the transition zone, this zone is the possibility of more development. Considering the long history of the development of human art, contemporary art can't be in the blank on the basis of innovation and development, all the art from traditional and point to the future. Therefore, in the tradition and contemporary between, between past and future, between the east and the west, there are many tradeoff model, hybrid difficulty naming and qualitative state of art and style style. These classical growth status, the purity of art, completely broke the "pure blood" and "standardization production" fundamentalist desire, which have sprung up many new possibilities of development, also make some attempts to classification to the macro narration or cultural living contemporary art theory systematized and patterned expression looked very pale. However, in today trying to establish a theoretical system to include the "right" and guide the appearance of contemporary art, is a kind of good wishes. From species to genetic engineering, human beings for their own survival and development, without hesitation, took the experiment and the pace of innovation, this may be disrupted in nature in ten thousand as the calculating unit process of natural evolution, the long-term consequences of it is still difficult to predict, but such as hybrid rice, transgenic species had become the real life in real life, we can't avoid, only to face.

Since the 90 s China experimental ink painters group, is the art of an unprecedented hybrid. Experimental ink painting is the Chinese ink painting to the modern one path in a variety of development path, in the process of ink painting into a modern, contemporary, openness is an irreversible process, the Chinese ink painting has and will continue to appear more diverse art types and art language. Entering the new century, due to the arrival of consumer society in advance, a new generation of young artists tend to be more on the basis of the image culture has a strong consumer culture characteristic of pop art and commercial art, which makes the experimental ink painting, and other modern art with characteristics of modernism elite quietly take a back seat, and most of the audience and the growing Chinese collectors group is still in a study on the threshold of modernist art, while we haven't the modern art academy of fine arts of the real incorporated into college education system. The creation, dissemination and accept the history of the dislocation, makes China's experimental art has a wide range of space development and communications. Observed in Beijing 798, somalia's home village, winery, tongzhou songzhuang and artists such as Shanghai suzhou river, moganshan road and gallery, we can see from the most commercial gallery to the most radical experimental art studio, everybody co-located, belongs and Chinese contemporary art has emerged as a co-existence, mixed state of symbiosis. The emergence of experimental ink painters and existence and social transformation since the 90 s, and there is a close relationship between urban change, works of artistic value but they will not be because of float time pay close attention to the transfer of the hot spots. Discussions and debates about the experimental ink was filed in nearly 20 years continuously, at the same time the experimental ink painting artists constantly invited to Chinese contemporary art from all over the world, along with China's beginning fierce battle "ink" and "globalization and nationalization of Chinese fine arts of the last discussion, also proved from the perspective of peaceful rise of the Chinese nation in the context of Chinese culture in the contemporary globalization high vitality and bright prospects.

Around since the 90 s experimental ink painting mainly focused on the discussion of experimental ink painting can enter the mainstream of Chinese contemporary art and its cultural identity in the world of art. If we hope we can in the new century Chinese contemporary ink painting with cross regional and the possibility of cross-cultural communication, will not be able to stay in the pure form of level, and within the system need to Chinese traditional painting problem research from the view point of ink painting into a more open research on the relationship between the modern art and contemporary life, and then discusses why contemporary art through the form of innovation and exploration and expression of modern spirit. Analysis and study of "experimental ink painting" art history and the meaning of culture, for a comprehensive understanding of Chinese contemporary art, it is necessary to observe the modern transformation of Chinese painting. Since the 90 s the basic pattern of contemporary Chinese ink painting summed up as "traditional ink painting", "school of ink", "experimental ink painting" three concepts. "Traditional ink painting" means for the continuation of traditional Chinese painting ink, its value ideal and aesthetic interest in classical Chinese paintings, for both in the song dynasty imperial court decorative painting modeled claborate-style painting or drawing literati painting for the root cause of xieyi painting in the Ming and qing dynasties, the pen and ink techniques and escapist, leisure county, the unity of nature and view of nature and view of painting, represents the spirit of Chinese traditional culture for thousands of years.

Institute of "ink painting" its origins can be traced back to the beginning of the 20th century China's May 4th new culture movement, the pioneer of a large number of new culture pain Chen zhong the empty decline of the traditional Chinese painting, argues that the introduction of western painting method of transformation of Chinese painting. Specifically is to the west since the Renaissance of the three dimensional shape observation and modelling method is introduced to China, will the traditional Chinese painting teacher and pupil gives and write copy, and way of handing down into on the basis of the sketch of college education, to establish a scientific, regularity for ideal large-scale system of cultivating talents of traditional Chinese painting. In painting at the same time, pay more attention to art and the aesthetic relationship of real life, advocating for the art of life, the pen and ink techniques are subject to the overall picture image shaping and thematic composition, works express the unity of ideological content and the form language become the basic evaluation criteria. Experimental ink painting is a kind of form, but what is a kind of form? It is considered that the experimental ink painting is abstract ink painting; Some argue that the experimental ink painting is the modern ink painting, shall include type and the phenotype of representational ink. For a long time.

Artist only CARES about his creation form and the creation of self, as to what others call his creation, little care. But if for critics, each have each concept is easy to cause critics and critics, critics and artists, critics and viewer communication, understanding, dislocation and argument, also easy to is not a simple problem simplification or put in a simple complication, a lot of unnecessary confusion. In order to achieve the unity on the concept, and to reduce or avoid meaningless controversy, we need to explore the experimental ink painting before development situation for some ink pen and ink to discuss what is experiment, the experimental ink painting should be a kind of form? Unlike school of traditional ink and wash is the third type of ink painting experimental ink painting, also some people called "modern ink painting" or "abstract ink painting", these three concepts although there are differences in semantic meaning, but refers to the creation of Chinese painting has a strong sense of change since the 90 s a kind of creation, it is different from the spirit and style of the painting form. Experimental ink painter's art form, characterized by the choice of art medium is the attitude of the ink, the ink painting as a kind of mental performance materials and is not a technical specification, because the ink for contemporary artist offers a variety of choice space and spirit is revealed. Obviously, the attitude towards material is not only the material and technical, more should see artist inner spiritual intention when the choice plays a big role. About the "experimental ink painting" "experiment", can have different levels of understanding. First of all, "experiment" is a kind of firm and uncompromising attitude change, refers to something extraordinary imagination, believes that it is a can realize the ideal, and constantly explore the practice. The importance of "experiment" in art history, is that it insists on expanding the previous untouched. Second, "experiment" is the basic way of art history development, namely experimental ink painting art orientation, are outside the traditional ink painting system, develop a broad path, with the attitude of modernism and traditional distance, traditional Chinese and foreign art resources as the starting point of experimental art to explore.

Based on highly mature traditional modern transformation of the implementation language, namely the application of new materials, abstract schema and form generation techniques of synchronization. "Experiment" in the third level, is a kind of modern critical spirit, namely to reflect what the universality of recognized, respected artists personal unique express feelings and images to the world, in the concrete, inclusive, open mind for the modern extension of Chinese ink painting. And the concept of "ink painting", also is not rejects colour and material, it not only refers to the Chinese traditional artistic media, but also refers to a kind of humanistic care of the living style of the contemporary artist here, Chinese intellectuals of the spirit of aesthetic ideal gained unprecedented diversity. Experimental ink painting since the 90 s, not only in extended the traditional ink painting materials and technology, and in the aspect of image structure and symbolic organization has made new progress. In the artist's work, there is different from traditional ink painting space consciousness and the way of structure, pen and ink is no longer as the center of the artistic expression, but one of a variety of artistic expression, in a more complicated language acquired new significance in the system. With traditional ink lyricism, poetic harmony is different, more experimental ink painting artists adopted the misappropriate, mutation, dislocation, collage, abstract the logical expression, with the idea of narrative expression, introduces traditional Chinese painting with a cultural context of contemporary social existence coexistence resonance.

Experimental ink painting "non-figurative" in China, namely people usually say "abstractness", that is a lot of experimental ink painting artists no longer create a specific object in his creation, turned to abstract schemata and diversification of ink painting techniques to realize the modernity transformation of ink painting language. So although "abstract ink painting" is used to define "experimental ink painting" is too narrow, but the integrated use of abstract language is a distinctive feature of "experimental ink painting". Connotation of experimental ink than abstract ink painting, and it can include subjective strong deformation image, symbolic of schemata, expressive ink, material collage. With ink as the main media, emphasizing the concept of ink device and behavior art, can be incorporated into the category of "ink experimental art", they are not in the ink painting ink as the concept of performance material installation art, or performance art. Judging from the background of Chinese art in the 21st century, perhaps the term "modern ink painting" can show more is happening in the Chinese contemporary ink painting modernism trend, namely experimental ink painting not only participated in the Chinese contemporary art in the new form of modern transformation, also participated in the contemporary world with a unique outlook the development of culture and art. Someone will therefore experimental ink painting is called "modern ink painting". The so-called "modern", not the concept of timeliness, it is the "modernity" in experimental ink painting creation, it is a cultural and spiritual proposition, namely Chinese ink painter conscious reflection on the specific historical situation, which is on the history of contemporary Chinese society and the contemporary state of persistent attention and ink painting language expression of modernity. Experimental ink painting is to introduce western art of Chinese painting in the 20th century, the transformation of traditional Chinese painting, the continuation of the combination of Chinese and western art history. In the mid - 90 - s, through the study of academic debate, and criticism, the experimental ink painting become the most active in the contemporary Chinese painting art trend, and started in the sights of collectors at home and abroad.

From nearly 10 years of many important experimental ink painting exhibition, can be observed that there are quite a few private funds in support of the experimental ink painting creation and academic activities. Part is quite far-sighted entrepreneurs, collectors involved in China's early activity of the experimental ink painting and collection. There are 1995 national art museum of China in Beijing held "expression of tension and ink painting exhibition"; "The end of the 20th century in 1996 by the guangzhou development trend of Chinese modern ink painting" exhibitions and academic activities; In November 1998, organized by YanShuangXi planning in xi 'an "looking back changan: modern ink painting collection invitational exhibition"; 2001 held by guangdong museum of art, "the Chinese ink painting, 20 years of experiment" retrospective, etc. Shanghai art biennale in 2000, shenzhen international ink painting biennale large comprehensive ink painting, experimental ink painting works are also occupies an important position. Experimental ink painting artists in China also took part in the Europe, America and other countries hold multiple exhibition and solo exhibition, such as Germany museum "new ink painting exhibition" held in Berlin, New York, p. s. I modern art at the "China's new art exhibition", New York, guggenheim museum of "Chinese Wen Mingzhan five thousand", "Asian international art exhibition" held by the fukuoka, Japan, and in the summer of 2002 in China and overseas exhibition of China's "experimental ink painting art", and since 2008 in the United States, eastern Europe and other places tour "Murray ink" exhibition is on display, this shows that China's experimental ink painting are moving into the trend of the world cultural exchange. A portion of the works in this exhibition for the exhibition, the organizer and collected by collectors, it is a phenomenon worthy of attention. When we are in the debate over the future development of Chinese painting, discussing the cultural identity of experimental ink painting, overseas and China some visionary art museum, the collection agencies and collectors have discovered a new artistic resources, entered the experimental ink painting collection. As long as we think of the royal collection in ancient China, yangzhou school of the qing dynasty, and the subsequent sea school, lingnan school, etc., you can know, is the formation of strong economic backing support the artists and the formation of artistic creation, communication, research atmosphere.

From the perspective of the development of the country of Chinese ink painting, the experimental ink painting has been preliminary achieved distinctive artistic language achievement, and become important phenomenon in the history of Chinese contemporary art since the 90 s, and the development of Chinese contemporary ink painting provides a frame of reference, to promote our consideration of contemporary ink painting. We have reason to think that, from the point of view of art history and cultural history research and analyze the experimental ink painting, and actively into the existing system of museum, will be the impetus of the development of the 21st century Chinese ink and wash is an important subject. Experimental ink painting is the product of modern Chinese society transition period, the difference between it and traditional ink painting lies in its cultural connotation and spirit pursuit, namely it is to express the spirit and mental state of modern people, aesthetic interest, but at the same time, insist on experimental ink painting should change from the traditional Chinese painting (the great Chinese painting since the qin and han dynasties) for style of language resources and growing point. Experimental ink and special emphasis on the artistic creation of "relationship between mind and matter", "heart" in it and make it different from academic sketch type traditional Chinese painting. Of course, we also do not need to deny that experimental ink from the western modern art learned many valuable things, such as structure, color, texture, collage, ideas, etc. But most importantly, the experimental ink painting artists soberly realize that they face, is a modern Chinese society and a sharply growing economic, political, and cultural globalization of industrialization, a new era of science and technology, informationization. The resulting experimental ink painting dilemma -- both to keep as ink painting tradition of Chinese culture identity, put the ink on the contemporary art into life, making ink painting not "outsiders" in China's modernization process. In the face of the world, to adhere to the cultural characteristics of Chinese art; In the face of Chinese society, to establish himself as a modern spirit of artistic representation, "experimental ink painting" in the history of cultural significance was established. Experimental ink painting in the history of the cultural significance of the first is that it's in the pattern of international art is part of a diverse national art. The establishment of cultural identity is the result of two basic points, one is Chinese art, as the representative of Oriental art, does is different from western art culture connotation and values, as part of the global cultural Mosaic puzzles, Chinese art should have its own cultural traits, by maintaining a necessary tension with contemporary western art, to promote the communication of the equality of all countries in the world of art.

In the face of strong western culture, China have a self-esteem, self-confidence and strong national art, to express the spirit of the new generation, it means that the health and personality, dignity and imaginative creation. Back to a more traditional topic, namely the relationship with the reality, its art value is based on the art of the reflection of reality, or the art itself logic evolution? In fact, this question way may not be very appropriate, ask itself contains a binary binary thinking framework. Experimental ink painting as a part of the Chinese contemporary art, to actively participate in the Chinese realistic image reconstruction, Chinese artists to explore the artistic language, the language how to through the way of expression associated with reality? Of traditional ink painting language from the perspective of morphology, disintegration of restructuring and reengineering, organization of metaphors, symbols from the image to build the deep cultural ties of abstract and concrete, which means a kind of inheritance of traditional ink painting fracture and reverse. In this sense, the significance of experimental ink painting in the history of art is a creative transformation, namely in the history of Chinese painting to complete the cultural transition from traditional to modern. I will therefore experimental ink and positioning in the category of modern art, the connotation of this definition is that the experimental ink painting was developed in the traditional Chinese painting in the context of modern Chinese painting forms, its basic value (art value and spiritual value) is a positive and constructive. In the early 90 s, the ink is also known as a formalized, marginalization of ink painting style, but today, it has become the contemporary Chinese ink painting in various forms (including the abstract, performance, materials, ideas, etc.) the most dynamic art phenomenon. Because the experimental ink painting and Chinese traditional art and modern western art origin, need comprehensive research from the perspective of eastern and western art, its main audience and collectors will be grown up in a modern society with higher education level and artistic accomplishment of a generation

Criticism of art philosophy

 

Chinese contemporary art and art criticism to Chinese modern art criticism from the philosophy theory, guided by the ideology of art criticism influenced Chinese literary criticism for a long time, critics are active or passive subsidence in the vulgar sociology, how the art criticism deepen to the philosophical level, is the art of contemporary Chinese criticism has already started to move in, and reflect the value of the good. From the clover. Bell, greenberg's translation, formalism criticism has quite a long time, art criticism as a kind of philosophy to guard the cultural critique of power, in the civilization history of the whole territory is not missing, is thought force of human history to prevent wrong. A failure of era, the first is the absence of PiPanLi, fragile, as much as life the body loss of immunity. The problem of art criticism with its own problems of contemporary art has the same importance. Many works reflect the city's new man, the cartoon image, this and the urban culture of China today, consumerism, materialism, is directly related to the new human phenomenon, with the analysis of the traditional forms of personal performance, criticism cannot explain these works well, the task of the science of art criticism into a series of accurate and rigorous scientific investigation, statistics and analysis, thus become externalization, unable to cut into the philosophical meaning of works of art. This is not the kind of leader and main idea of the critics. If to humanism, that means the understanding of contemporary art, analysis and evaluation should be subject to the humanistic value, including the formalism, psychology, and cultural studies. Media on a variety of editorial, commentators are talking about the nature of the event itself, not to talk about the nature of the event form, the relationship between the aesthetic and philosophical, if really want to comment, also becomes the editorial.

Method of psychology, semiotics, art criticism philosophy to the emergence of this thesis for the reason of deep, reflected the humanities, humanities scholars on the research methods in the face of the demand of philosophy. Chinese art from the grand narrative to the transformation of the lives of ordinary, more practical discourse and perspective, to foresee and prospected the development of Chinese art next, become the bottleneck of Chinese contemporary art criticism and theory research. Since the eighty s in popular culture in western academia research model and the philosophy behind the discourse resources, to turn the philosophy of the Chinese contemporary art, which provides theoretical support. Yet any western theoretical discourse must combine with Chinese art concrete conditions, rich significance and value, so the history again and again contextualization is the necessary way of art theory and art practice. As a result, the thought of philosophy is essentially a PiPanLi creates, Chinese artists commonly held a kind of stubborn prejudices and they think "the first animals to zoology, first with art is art criticism", the implication is an artist is superior to critic. Ignorance, the repulsive mood reflects a theory shows that many artists are ordinary artisans, they had no thought of philosophy of grace, that theory is not practical, and showed a dismissive attitude. Of modern art in China is, as it were, do not have the spirit of modern art, such as the image of contemporary Chinese painting on the visual language is close to the western modern abstract paintings, but following a philosophy of Yin and Yang nature of ignorance, or not to take off the charm of abstract art. In addition, in China also someone to rock and roll and spectrum of art, at least in art forms with the western rock and spectrum there is no difference, the difference is the former a clever copy, but the latter from the artist to have social life the inner spirit of modernity. In a barren land of modernity, art criticism are just as flattering - no one care about its independent value. Chinese artists commonly held a stubborn think art is art criticism came first, the repulsive mood reflects a theory of ignorance, shows that many artists are ordinary artisans, they had no thought of philosophy of grace, that theory is not practical, and showed a dismissive attitude.

China's modern art is art with modern spirit, such as the image of contemporary Chinese painting on the visual language is close to the western modern abstract paintings, but following a philosophy of Yin and Yang nature of ignorance, or not to take off the charm of abstract art. In addition, in China also someone to rock and roll and spectrum of art, at least in art forms with the western rock and spectrum there is no difference, the difference is the former a clever copy, but the latter from the artist to have social life the inner spirit of modernity. In a barren land of modernity, art criticism are just as flattering - no one care about its independent value. Art criticism tend to find problems, in addition to the study of art internal, more focus on critical review of work and interpretation. In addition, art criticism to art of external relations research, that is the cultural significance of art to society, reality and life factors on the influence of culture and art. Art external criticism mainly aimed at the face of political system, culture, education, economic behavior, discourse tools etc. This means that the art criticism is no longer aesthetic, but a cultural critique of philosophy of mind, become a guard force of civilization.

Criticism is a kind of integrated culture creative force, the main tendency of criticism is questioned and denied, criticism, and establish its value from the negative, it not only depends on the realistic logic according to the knowledge and ability, need more independent firm critical spirit. Skills and knowledge of tools, an important premise is rejected their moral value, make knowledge into made tools. Guarding the creativity of art criticism as a kind of philosophy, fully embodies the ethics of knowledge. Critics, therefore, besides has the knowledge accomplishment, personality is important to have a critical spirit of justice. As Socrates philosophy inherited the spirit of midwife's mission, by asking people to think. Then, as an art criticism, not only on art itself, but also to criticism itself and external criticism of art. The current mainstream Chinese art criticism, it begs the external problems, such as cultural ecology and the social system, make criticism into a one-way interpretation and positive inner loop mode, and the resulted in the catastrophic formalism criticism, narrow became an established authority, to a certain extent, eliminated the diverse social and cultural soil. The rise of the modern civilization originated in the skepticism philosophy, is the great age of philosophy PiPanLi creation. A lack of critical force of society, must be a mental atrophy. Criticism is not only to follow the objective logic of knowledge ontology, but also a moral conscience of ontology. Art criticism is no longer aesthetic dialectic, but angling thoughts and ideas. Art of the original aesthetic activities associated with the evolution of the history of civilization and the comprehensive at present, there are even abuse of putting the cart before the horse. Though it cannot be microscopic statistical reactionary role of art, but it is the most important power lies and violence culture tools, become a human interest game political skill, and is no longer a pure aesthetic activities. Modern consumerism is one kind of experience economy, the goods into similar pleasure stimulant spirit product, process experience leading the core value of the goods, the reason is that a large number of art activities become a kind of power service and tradition culture.

Art criticism is not one-sided art aesthetic, but for the life of art utility purpose, is to promote the life and the world more unobstructed guard force. Chinese art is an indisputable fact, young artists of subjectivity, autonomy and enlightenment rationality of trendy art in the 1980 s, is dispelling the subjectivity in the 1990 s, the pursuit of experimental and field of artistic creation and social various art activities, and this trend into the new century the first five years still exists obviously. Around the 80 s and 90 s transformation and crossing, formed a lot of very good art criticism, because people always feel strongly to the of the gap between the obvious and fracture, also easy to form passionate language spark. But for 90 s art practice, art criticism always seems to be how to Japan, "aphasia" criticism is used to describe is very accurate. China's ancient civilizations to shrink, one of the main reasons is the lack of cultural criticism error correction ability. Unification of imperial power, will become "Mukden the carrier" the absolute truth of imperial power, the right is the "pointing", any criticism is the offence of insurrection "deceit gentleman sin". Therefore, emphasizing the moral itself into the core values of Chinese culture, through saint worship implement moral enlightenment, "the author" has become a social culture doctrine, late season from cheng zhu song to qing, they prove that Chinese culture PiPanLi dried up, academic thoughts and philosophy of culture and art no guards, instead, "I note images, philosophical note I" within the volume of the cycle of learning. The philosophy of the subject of literary criticism and to defend the fitness activity of human civilization, promote world widely open. In the process of civilization alienation of power, destroy the patency of others, even the most open to maximize its own interests and power. As world leaders travel using arms control alert privilege is taken, to others, to maximize unobstructed. Aesthetic culture is not only an isolated pure aesthetic activity, it even a power ritual, conscious control of social behavior. Therefore, whether it is art or art criticism, concept has always been a battleground, emphasize independent almost no a kind of art spirit ethical consciousness. Traditional aesthetics emphasizes the "beauty" no harm but is a kind of ideal moral integrity, aesthetic consciousness and artistic activities in which moment it was born to carry the civilization conflicts, and give some manipulation, the chance of interference, so as to highlight the cultural function of art criticism.

How to see and evaluation of this kind of change of Chinese art, how in the many group of theorists called from the grand narrative or hero ode to ordinary narrative or in the process of the transition of the ordinary world, find a more practical discourse and perspective, to find the regularity of them, for the development of Chinese art next to foresee and outlook, it became the bottleneck of Chinese contemporary art criticism and theory research. People all will look onto since the eighty s in western academia is underway in the culture research on the mode of research and cultural research behind is called philosophy discourse resources. Through the important discourse resources as the present Chinese art philosophy Angle of view, to evaluate and examine in more than ten years practical experience and theoretical status quo of Chinese art, will be around the discourse on developing history and situation of Chinese art, which from the art of internal and external more widely and more abundant field of vision to reflect the contemporary artistic creation and criticism, the method of combing its occurrence and development of all kinds of objective conditions. Art as life phenomenon is reflected, is the spirit of life notice at the same time. Almost dominated the concept of the civilized world, and even reverse the material order and physical laws. Man is the only able to war, dedication for the ideal and belief and fight for the dignity, the unique life of suicide for shame. Therefore, the idea of art as an aesthetic activity material, must become the cultural tool of power game. Public opinion control value, cultural domination, brainwashing is art way of realizing the social power. Or, ideology and values control efficiency is equal to the essence of social power. At the same time, the concept of control and the control is not only a social game wrestling performance, is also a big history not free contraction forces, art criticism also reflects the cultural battles.

The value of art and price

 

Chinese art market need for ecological chain comprehensive combing, from the cultural spirit, the academic contribution and market value, observe and analyze the Chinese art market development trend, and the collection value creation, value guide investment reference guide, to guide the healthy development of the art market will play a positive role. Although is only a work of art auction market bidding transaction platform, in less than fair pricing of the role, but because trading is relatively open, focused, and by the approach of capital utilization, has become the art market platform for the market-oriented pricing. Scope of modern art practice has made the concept of "art" is more and more big, the impact on the traditional definition of art. In the face of modern art, the famous American analysis aesthetes block station in the analysis of the aesthetic standpoint, from art and human intention, the art of utilitarianism, art and art practice, open from four aspects, such as art concept to redefine the concept of "art", to seek aesthetics for modern art. Artistic American economist goeth Harper said: "if you use the dollar amount measuring the productivity of an artist, you will find that the most notable artists to make money." He believes that the purpose of art is to attract attention. Managed to attract attention is the whole point of art. That is to say, in a sense, the decisive factors influencing the price of art, in fact it is not just the artistic value of art itself, and art only quantity, but art can attract attention. And the art auction price is accordingly with the legitimacy, become the theory of market prices. Another coincidence, the auction market is also the art market one of the few exit channel, it also makes the arbitrage become more short, flat, fast. However, the pricing of legitimacy depend entirely on the auction house own accumulated "trade credit". The credit for the auction house trading system design, to ensure the transparency of transactions, real. And the auction house now trading system design can only guarantee the limited credit, namely in public bidding links; At the same time make a third party trade, its credit is obviously not the card.

 

Art as a commodity to the particularity of art is not necessaries of life, it is often "xing after every failure before every profession", the value assessment of difficulties from the particularity of different from ordinary commodities. The particularity of art performance as follows: 1. The scarcity and alternative difference is the basic attribute of art. As a typical scarcity of goods, the supply of art number is very few. Great master work must have a unique style and complicated artistic skills, the higher the complexity, the stronger the irreplaceable rarity. "Content with rare for expensive" is the real reflection of value formation of the art. Only in the last year, the industry also believe that the art auction market this year will fall to 40% at least prediction is pessimistic. It now appears that this prediction was too optimistic. In the face of the decline, for I'm afraid I don't like most in the industry as - is "the return of rationality in the art market" and "has positive significance", because art auction market is still not have the capacity to self-correcting. Since 2004, the art market entered a dominated by speculative trading in the market, the auction market after several years of preheating, finally from conventional growth in 2010 and 2010, entered the stage of rapid growth. From the market point of view, all transactions can be classified as investment and speculative trading.

 

In the art market, in this collection, exhibition and other production and consumer transactions are on the purpose of the investment; But neither collection or use, simple buying and selling is speculative trading. Although in practice, investment or speculative trading is usually difficult to be effectively distinguish, both of which also can be mutual transformation in theory, such as a speculative trading works to be lent exhibition, there is a obvious internal standard: namely the growth of the investment is earned value, while speculative earned is only the price increment. Assume that art, art and artists is valuable, so the problem is that how to realize the value, then how to express this value. Gombrich said: there is no art, only artists and works of art. According to his logic, can be reasonably concluded that said, if there is no art expression form of perceived value of the art and the artist's value cannot be cognitive, I mean can public measure of perceived value. , in turn, can be concluded that, if there is no price discovery mechanism of evolution and confirmation of art, the value of art is also difficult to confirm in public discourse, "speculation" has always been a derogatory term, the "investment" is rather good, but in fact are neutral. "Investment" of social value, needless to say, but any profit speculative trading also beneficial to the society. In any a healthy market, in addition to the value of conventional investment, with a small amount of speculators are useful and necessary; But if too much speculators, the price will be out of the normal consumption is decided by speculators. This is why art market after the present condition. Especially the Chinese art market prices have risen since 2000, which is related to the overall economic changes in temperature, but the art market is not perfect in its development is also important factor. In the overall excess liquidity circumstances, however, speculative trading scale far exceeds the investment scale of the industry and more than an art market. But why art auction market in all parties, including preferential policy support, boom two years alone in the rush collapse? Please observe what happened in the collapse of the art auction market.

 

Art in the process of trading, the long-term lack of a set of market-oriented pricing mechanism, is still used by self original temporary pricing means such as quotation, to compare pricing. It is also facing financial capital enter the art market is generally subject - must design a reasonable set of artwork price model to assess and arbitrage. This have similarities with the domestic oil pricing mechanism. After the oil crisis, the United States and other western countries have managed to oil pricing power shifting from the producer to the financial futures market. But it is the development and reform commission (NDRC) refer to the domestic international market average prices adjust pricing. So the status quo, made in the capital in urgent need of a market-oriented pricing platform as well as the corresponding pricing mechanism, otherwise unable to arbitrage. The gallery deals most based in serious information asymmetry, closed and scattered, do not meet the basic requirement of market-oriented pricing platform. Value in the art market in China at present, found that the problem has not been adequate attention, either in theory or practice level, you more attention to itself or market prices of some problems, and ignore the value of the art market. Because the art form and realize the value of mining is different from other goods, it needs more value through value found, so how to discover, found that becomes the most important problem facing the art, and the Chinese market just ignore such a key link. Is the value of construction has always been the core issue of the art market, is also the focus of the most controversial of art market: lack of art market pricing mechanism The auction market is not pricing platform. Auction market pricing platform, not on the value of art theory and art market value should realize theory to the research and discussion, the theory of positioning and its the research significance of the research works of art value theory the basic situation, provide abundant theoretical resources for the research on the art value and theory basic point, including the concept of the commodity and their mutual relations. Artists to create works of art as long as into the circulation field, by art consumers purchase, and finally out of art creation, it is art goods, and has the common features of general merchandise. Design process of art as a special commodity, and the decision of the art value content were studied and discussed. Decision is not a time of individual creation of art value, but the impact on the society. Fourth, guided by the Marx's commodity value law content, from the combination of theory and practice, analyses the theory of art value and research, and to sum up and summarize the studies on practice, fully understand and affirmed the particularity of art research of theoretical and practical significance. Considering from the Angle of risk, in efficient markets, the risk of the investment transactions can be measured, and speculative trading in the case of price forecasts determine is almost no risk. Because of speculative trading earn is the difference between the two regions or the same market price difference of the same goods in different time points, the risk it all depends on the price forecasts and market for the goods is valid the efficient market theory can balance the difference in a very short time, in the case of price forecasts determine, zero risk, speculative arbitrage is inevitable; Risk and expected price is difficult to determine, is rapidly expanding, will eventually hinder the speculative trading. Art concept orientation and quality characteristics, consumer understanding of art and value judgment, all kinds of trading behavior and the influence of supply and demand relations to the art market, etc., all need from the combination of theory and practice on the value of art theory and art study and explore market operation mechanism, art auction market is essentially a competitive trading platform rather than a real market-oriented pricing platform.

 

Under the current art market pricing mechanism, in the capital of bidding in the auction market pricing is completed at the same time, like the face of positive and negative of a coin. This means that the price of the same goods at different time points is entirely predictable. When price forecasts determine, speculation there would be no any risk, standing can also give money to earn. But as the auction house in do multi-channel legitimacy constantly endorsement for this price, the trade credit has also been infinitely overdrawn. At the same time, due to the auction house can card credit, more can't find the fourth party for its credit guarantee, when credit is the auction house without bottom line overdraw, its pricing and therefore no longer has the "legitimacy", leading to price forecast. In price expectations under the condition of uncertainty, is unable to measure the risk of speculative trading, trading has been forced to stagnation. At this point, the market of stagflation, art auction market fell to seventy percent in a second. In today's world, economic globalization has brought great changes to the development of culture art industry, the art market globalization trend more and more obvious. Represented by China, India, the Middle East, Russia's emerging market vigorous art, developing rapidly, and has become hot spot except New York, London art market in Europe and America market. Was ripening from a public bidding platform for the whole art exchange platform for the market-oriented pricing, the auction house since can't card credit, more difficult to find a fourth party or guarantee for its credit assessment, even after the stagflation, market to return to the psychological price, because of the art market in the short term outside the auction platform, still can not find out the second pricing when capital influx again, the whole art auction market will still be a repeat.

The contradiction and conflict of dialectical thinking

 

The father of western existential Kerr kay gore puts forward new ideas, subjectivity affirmed the contradictions and conflicts of dialectical thinking. In western aesthetics theory, discusses comedy is the earliest Plato. Kant from the psychological effects of comedy comedy in principle is discussed. Hegel's theory of "contradictions", one of the biggest contribution to the theory of aesthetic is to apply the method of dialectical thinking in the analysis of the phenomenon of tragedy. Think that the generation of tragedy is the result of division of philosophy. He saw the tragedy conflicts of both sides has certain rationality, also has the certain one-sidedness. Nietzsche thinks that the birth of tragedy is associated with the two kinds of spirit of the ancient greeks, this spirit and dionysian spirit of god. Apollo represents the dream state, representing the plastic arts of static; Dionysian representative drunk state, representing the elevation of music art. Hegel, from the viewpoint of contradiction, in the comparison of tragedy and comedy to reveal the causes of comedy, appears more profound and suit the essence of comedy. Comedy is essentially two types of social conflict of power, it is something new or is about to win after win the negation of the old things, enable the human to happily with his past farewell. Need to point out that the development of Chinese art due to historical reasons, it is difficult to simple correspondence and western art development stage, cannot be mechanically to set in several stages. The forms of language to explore, for example, it's hard to say now this problem has been solved. Again, such as, in terms of relationship between art and culture, many problems have not come and deep; Now, the problem of reconstruction of art sociology and raised; This means that these problems is not an alternative relationship between each other, but the cross relationship.

 

China's specific situation, determine the problems it faces the contradiction and conflict of the dialectical thinking of stereo. Henry Moore's work became the official ideology, become today's most legitimacy in China's urban sculpture style. Henry Moore's popularity in China and valued, degree of popular once again that we saw, "" vulgar sociology is how to affect our life, which again let us clearly see the art of change and what exactly is the general public relations with China. China's public acceptance of Soviet power and prestige eight sides, fighting style sculpture, today they will accept or Henry Moore sculpture, and every time, government officials and artists are always fit so tacit understanding. Don't just go out of the question. If the research method of the inherent don't change, the knowledge structure is not updated, I'm afraid problem still not solved. Now multivariate information channels, has changed the way foreign art research.

 

Don't have to rely on foreign books and picture albums, because of the network technology developed, we need to knock on the keyboard, move the mouse with foreign galleries and art organizations and artists to establish the most direct link. Through the network, we can obtain more cutting edge than foreign books and brochures of firsthand material, from image to text, is from soup to nuts. We also don't have to be getting lost in the form of compilation, as compared with the compilation of indirect information, the scene of real feelings can make us understand the real appearance of foreign art development. Until today, this kind of phenomenon is still evident. We in sculpture, for example, in "vulgar sociology in power," Henry Moore modernist sculpture, such as natural as rotten "bourgeois art"; When profound changes have taken place in China's history, since middle and later periods of the 90 s last century, for the criticism of modernist sculpture, disgust, boycott, seems suddenly disappeared overnight, a group of young turks government officials to modern sculpture shows totally different from the past, they said 'mis-understanding' among the sculptor, your design must be "modern", "abstract", must be internationalized. These often go abroad, see provincial officials, hope in their jurisdiction, and modernist art of flowers everywhere. From another perspective, can not only experience abroad all kinds of art activities at the scene, but also to foreign art to restore the research object, this whether to foreign art history research, or for foreign concern and criticism of contemporary art, will constitute a new cognitive.

 

Clearly emphasized by China's efforts to rebuild sociology of art sociology's position, when the artist in the face of the public, first should be a social worker. They put forward the design of the slogan is "let the community residents told us to do?" They reinterpret "from the masses, to the masses" working method, before the design, and project after the completion of the work conducted serious social survey and questionnaire, this makes their work is the foundation of public opinion, there are also public opinion feedback of quantitative data. In the process of project implementation, the public has always been involved in the whole process of the creation, so the project was welcomed by the public. British sculptor Antony gormley in China and the success of the implementation of the "Asian land" sculpture tour plan, the solstice 18 January 22, 2003, from guangzhou huadu district in the northeast of the nearly 400 people of different ages, under the guidance of the artist, spent five days, with more than 120 tons of clay, finally created nearly 200000 palm big small clay figurine. Small clay figurine after forming, sent to a local brick factory to dry, on March 22, 2003. Gormley was not a trained artists, never on the school of art, he proves that everyone can be an artist.

 

When some people identify certain talents is an artist, he will put himself as an artist in the sense of responsibility off, and found a world, to express a responsibility on the artist, he thinks of the world. In addition to outside the sociological significance of the exhibition on display at the exhibition hall, there are more and more art started out of the hall, to the public, to the open space. In shenzhen oct, has held four sessions of annual exhibition of contemporary sculpture art, practice out of the gallery to try, let the artist's work in public space and the audience of exchange; Sculpture writer in 2002, the Chinese artists association of China "the west wind" sculpture exhibition, in the form of "artistic caravan", let more than one hundred and fifty pieces of sculpture ten city tour, to communicate with the public in a public space, as many as more than 820 visitors, this is unprecedented in the history of Chinese art exhibition, "western China wind" in this unique way explored in the new social and historical conditions, the arts and public relations. The whole earth or the vast majority of contemporary culture is not necessarily after modernization. In this era also popular with all kinds of cultural objects, including modernism and realism, and the cultural objects such as gothic and Christian before realism such as the culture. Second, should also see a lot of experience in the cultural object is a blend of realism, modernism and postmodernism. So, the "postmodern" and "modernism" as the contradiction and conflict to use the dialectical thinking, in the cultural history, simply does not exist between cultural paradigm change before and after the strict sequence.

The thinking mode of art development

 

Yuan Chu Chen 

The thinking mode of art development

  

Thinking mode and in the development of art in this kind of thinking mode formed under the influence of realistically representational performance, actually to use visual representation to prove the truth of human rationality of omnipotent such a mission. To truly understand and use the essence of cultural studies, combined with China's specific environment, sociology significance to Chinese society or each component part of research, analysis, induction and explanation, it is very necessary and urgent. Art practice of 90 s, however, art criticism always seems to be not to Japan, with criticism "aphasia" to describe is very accurate, this kind of change of Chinese art, in the theory of many group of home called from the grand narrative or hero ode to ordinary narrative or in the process of the transition of the ordinary world, find a more practical discourse and perspective, to find the regularity of them, for the development of Chinese art next to foresee and outlook, it became the bottleneck of Chinese contemporary art criticism and theory research. People all will look onto since the eighty s in western academia is underway in the culture research on the mode of it is important to note that we used here with the object of study to the meanings of sociology, is not ordinary social data and phenomenon of induction in the sense of sociology, and should be more accurately refers to the entire social sciences, research scope involved in social science.

 

Chinese avant-garde art before avant-garde can basically belongs to history, namely by challenging political authority to shape their own value. Its social intervention is very obvious. And Chinese post-modern art by critics as the elitist ideology also has the function of art, its social effect have also been put in an important position. Even in western art is seen as a pure form of "modern art" - abstract art, also deeply marked by the "social", its starting point is the social, political, and non-artistic itself, the pure forms as a kind of struggle, change means: wu guanzhong "painting of formal beauty" and "about ChouXiangMei" play to the role of mainstream art standard initially questioned; Second "stars art exhibition" apply to the national art museum of China artists association, President of jiangfeng in said can be negotiated, make up, "but the ugly, too abstract" exhibition, also that the "rebellion" status of abstract art; And today's abstract art or became the typical art goods, or become a typical symbol of official art "standard beauty". Critics saw this is undoubtedly, China strictly no formalism, only college. In China in the 80 s because it is expressed the thought of liberalism, is synonymous with liberalism, strictly speaking it is not a formalism. The lack of aesthetic modernity, China is also strong proof.

 

Chinese contemporary art has been typically contains social this element, turn to the grand concept to expect and for Chinese contemporary art, means more attention to society, a completely ignore their real public situation, social issues and the sufferings of people of contemporary art in China today is no good reason. The problem of art criticism with its own problems of contemporary art has the same importance. Host zheng-hua sun is on the first session of BBS, "a lot of work performance in the city of new man, the cartoon image, this and the urban culture of China today, consumerism, materialism, is directly related to the new human phenomenon, with the analysis of the traditional forms of personal performance, criticism cannot explain these works well, so we want to learn from the sociological method criticism". How to view and evaluate Chinese art from the grand narrative to the transformation of the lives of ordinary, find a more practical discourse and perspective, to foresee and prospected the development of Chinese art next, become the bottleneck of Chinese contemporary art criticism and theory research.

 

Science sociology ", so, the task of art criticism will become a series of accurate and rigorous scientific investigation, statistics and analysis, so as to become "externalities", can't cut into the art of "meaning". This is not the kind of leader and main idea of the critics. Since the eighty s in popular culture in western academia research model and the sociology of discourse resources, to turn the sociology of the Chinese contemporary art, provides the theory support. However, any theory of western discourse must combine with Chinese art specific conditions, to rich significance and value, so the history again and again contextualization is the necessary way of art theory and art practice. Humanistic sociology means understanding of contemporary art, analysis and evaluation are subject to its social value, and formalism, psychology, and cultural studies, be excluded from the door of art criticism. This sense of art criticism dominated China's critics actually quite a long time, even though critics to realize "vulgar sociology" problem, but this does not prevent peers to LiXianTing critics such as identity of sociological criticism. Here, the concept of art criticism "to" met and contemporary art sociology into the same question: namely how from themselves to themselves.

 

Chinese contemporary art criticism has begun to differentiation in the methodology, and reflect the value of different methodologies. From the clover. For example, bell, greenberg's translation, formalism criticism sociological criticism of Chinese contemporary art, art critics need to sociology into, China's modern art in theory itself is not a problem in the transformation of sociology. Once it is fully social criticism, art, needless social criticism. Commentators are talking about the nature of the event itself, not about the nature of the event form, aesthetic and its production relations... If really want to comment, also becomes the editorial. The west from the perspective of sociology research and reflection on art provides a foundation. Because only when art for commercialization of independent appeared after the condition of survival and development space, art is likely to focus on yourself, pay attention to its own unique characteristics. Before this, there are also people such as booker hart, Dana art history philosophy, in the study of art USES such as race, environment, time to discuss the principle of art as a spiritual civilization and material civilization of the relationship between each other, but these explanations not formed a complete organic structure, also cannot go deep into the evolution of art style within the law. Because of this, appeared in the 1930 s, critics such as Mr Greenberg, a strong claim to the art of formalism forward against the commercialization and philistinism of art. However, this form of language is the medium of claims, after all, did not resist collision and fusion of art and society, because capital and commercialization is like an invisible hand, firmly to art and society together. Since art formalism pursuit cannot put an end to art and social relations, to explain followed by the enter the height of the consumer society, art, also will have to move around at this time, after the structuralism and structuralism under the care of cultural sociology method, in the view of the western scholars, also entered the art criticism and theory research field of vision.

 

For a fairly long period of time, the art is considered to be a reflection of the real world and facsimile, the ancestor of the view should calculate Plato, he put the human understanding of the world around us is divided into several levels, the level of art in the third, and so on, is about dating dating. Since then, his student, Aristotle correction and added to the teacher's one-sidedness, apply logic rule and the narrative plot to regulation role in the process of art in the world. This originated from the ancient Greek philosophy of human knowledge, including art, with the relationship between the objective reality, the cartesian era endowed with clear methodology, that is "I think therefore I am" dualistic thinking mode. Thinking of the human reason as a relatively rigorous system, able to recognize and reflect the external world, or, to the outside world (of course including humans as ethnic social composition) is by the human internal rational and dominate the world know. Through the important discourse resources as the present Chinese art world the use of the sociological perspective, to evaluate and examine in more than ten years practical experience and theoretical status quo of Chinese art, will be around the discourse on developing history and situation of Chinese art, which from the art of internal and external more widely and more abundant field of vision to reflect the contemporary artistic creation and criticism, the method of combing its occurrence and development of all kinds of objective conditions.

 

This thesis of the transformation of sociology of art criticism, reflected the humanities, humanities scholars on the research methods of anxiety in the face of social sciences powerful voice. Chinese art is an indisputable fact, young artists of subjectivity, autonomy and enlightenment rationality of trendy art in the 1980 s, is dispelling the subjectivity in the 1990 s, the pursuit of experimental and field of artistic creation and social various art activities, and this trend into the new century the first five years still exists obviously. Around the 80 s and 90 s transformation and crossing, formed a lot of very good art criticism, because people always feel strongly to the of the gap between the obvious and fracture, also easy to form passionate language spark. Culture research behind it is referred to as words of sociology, ever since the emergence of the art has never is not likely to rupture, is the research on the relation between art and social theories and schools of thought contend, influences and decides the people understanding of art and social patterns and Angle. In other words, all about art and social relationships, in fact is the art and social relationship as an opportunity of discourse mode and methodology of the debate. Sociology is a dedicated to the interpretive understanding of social action and thus making causal explanatory science to cause and effect. This kind of explanation of social action, of course, it is not a pure data and phenomenon of statements and induction, but not before many humanists of the empty fantasy autonomy and subjectivity and so on, but a value on the study of the social problems. As the western bourgeois revolution and capitalist industrialization, the existence of art, profound changes have taken place in external conditions, art in the field of human knowledge that the role of the long-term also began to have loose and change, in the artistic principle to return. Since the impressionist especially since Cezanne, the real art is no longer just for rational services, and are faithful to irrational real, faithful to rational outside the true feelings. In this way, the art of self-discipline and the form of language for the commercialization of art, as an independent object.

The strength of the art voice

It is a art capital and generates a strong voice. In fact, western and different schools of art, is also a common background and based on industrial and post-industrial country its own cultural characteristics of this nation. Not to learn the art of is unthinkable, the art of China has its own unique schema specification and the aesthetic taste and standard. To the rebuilding discourse of Chinese contemporary art to achieve self, must base on its own traditional culture and art academic theory. Contemporary art is the growth of the western pluralistic semantics, grow up together with the European and American culture concept, during the period of the feudal state can catch factor, is divulged roots and rational. After a complete enlightenment and after modernism steering, their mechanism and developing the spirit of citizenship is already in place, so the contemporary art in the west a trend of fruition. In China, this condition is missing. Congenital deformity of is beyond the offset and the day after tomorrow as well, so a strong artistic influence is not confined to art, a lot of localization of the "import" often make a laughing stock of the legislation and bitterness, evolved into "Chinese characteristics". The deformation of the east and the west contrast has been pain by many scholars, the thought of system and national conditions and wary of the grafting of contemporary art. Many scholars have put forward on the current national quality and the macro background, everything is not optimistic. Way to go after all, how in such objective reality level, has become a necessary attention.

 

As an academic theory, the concept of contemporary art, it embodies the transformation of Chinese society in the culture, art space, involves the relationship between person and person. Through the work of art with a new attitude to look at life, society, and look at the value of the human cognition of the subjective world and objective world definition and thinking. Contemporary art you must concern the core values of a society, must pass through the critical spirit of consensus guidance, to art works from the social conditions for critical analysis, reflect the demands of the society, to attract the public's participation, advocating cultural diversity and multi-level social function of culture, therefore, an era, a country or a nation's contemporary art show in this era, the state and the degree of national democracy and freedom. Social and cultural characteristics, cultural differences in resources and policy conditions and produce different way, different shape and different connotation, rather than a certain artistic style and the connotation of strong artistic voice copy, nor a fashionable popular art or pure commercial art imitation and processing. Study of contemporary art from the macroscopic theory examines the objective requirements, the artistic creation methods of multiple Angle analysis, rather than unilateral unilateral academic action, alert to the academic waste. Theory, form of expression of contemporary art, creative language and the carrier of platform is not restricted, should inspire various styles with the same situation, but in China, presents an awkward shape, is monotonous and impoverishment. With other countries in the world of contemporary art flowers, fine frequency contrast is now, in China it is rare to see amazing, was simply contemporary works of art, with symbolic, memorial, declare it to narrative and pure forms of artistic language as the main body, in history has light, release a positive role. In the nineties, China people's horizon and the amount of information is dried up, with the individual consciousness awakening and the degree of deepening reform and opening up, people need visual condensed to naturalization presence and fill the art layout of the mind. People always say today's not kept up with the pace of development of material civilization, spiritual civilization which is not entirely attributable to system of art creation, on the one hand is the artist's creative level, on the other hand it has evolved into a big game of money circulation. Exhibition of contemporary art, they are billed as in propaganda and the name of contemporary art, but deep insights into the among them, the method is a way of contemporary art and operational mechanism, this kind of air have strong exhibition of contemporary art and artists label, give the impression that the artist's smooth implementation plan or not is the first point. Need of contemporary art curator, but this limitation and effect is "exhibition", "exhibition" is not the purpose. This kind of work at the biennale, festival and on site project, hold "Chinese contemporary art", in addition to the dimension size and space outspread sex strong artistic voice, we can't see anything of this kind of art and contemporary art. Particularly when contemporary art in China is becoming more and more be financialization, vogue and media everything, we must pay attention to this kind of artistic value provided for shaping a growing civil society have a positive meaning and value, or say, they're just in a high-profile to himself, in the name of art's repeated complete artistic individual vanity fair logic. We can't because of a long duration and exists in the space art, consider it as a contemporary art. The contemporary art academic theories involved in the experiments to explore may have a certain value, but too high profile significantly overstated, make the mess of art more fell. On the connotation of cohesion and take it for granted why academic disability blindly.

 

With the theory of contemporary academic thinking to understand the nature of the entertainment and fast food of mass culture, deep in the mud of consumerism and the market for profit, to the real contemporary art is a kind of cause loss and damage. Humor characterization of contemporary Chinese art, fundamentally, is a cultural strategy. On the one hand, it reveals that in the name of art and guide the audience to reflect on the social problems and phenomena, on the other hand, it and the banner young Chinese culture to reveal itself in the contemporary art world ecological significance and value. Really can make a meaningful contribution to the artist, however, is far less than trumpeting the speculators, humor that culture strategy, in the hands of a lot of people descended into a kind of art. Root cause is the real fear and textbook as traditional culture, facing the market, and the temptation to have independent thinking and national artist as few and far between. On the connotation of contemporary art, and constantly make confused understanding and smoke, many scholars posture numb and along with the gender, without undergoing profound professional inquiry, but we walk in the cultural reality of the trespass, man-made infinitely expand the boundaries of contemporary art. This change has already started to happen in China, such as equipment, environmental art, landscape city furniture also began to be regarded as contemporary art. But it is not enough, should also extend outward from the visual art of contemporary art, drama, education, community gatherings, holiday celebrations, etiquette, etc., we have to put more temporary, dynamic, functional art activities included in the category of contemporary art... A contemporary art, can be a bazaar, a parade, a speech, a kindergarten, a library, a billboard, a kind of moon cakes, shown at a time, a chair, a car, a person, the Internet art and contemporary art, film can also be classified as contemporary art, so is poetry and fiction is contemporary art? Presented the abundant contradiction of contemporary Chinese art, created the opposite of multifarious. These mess and objective existence, it is a sign of poor academic theory.

 

 

 

 

Creation and academic research of Chinese contemporary art has entered a bottleneck, there are no more positive valuable theoretical breakthrough, also in the field of practical crisis. Overall meteorological administration will and consumerism is washed scattered, the academic theorists are common shallow popular culture took the nose, by the tide of contemporary art, scores of dojo into a catfish on the chopping block, a move of makeup dot of choose and employ persons, its humanistic brilliance and huge social functions are covered. Leopard and inertia force is powerful, so in the past, the future of Chinese contemporary art it is difficult to see a new idea. In view of the contradiction of Chinese contemporary art background and local crisis, on the research thinking and practice exploration must be repositioned, breaking the cyclical stand-off, otherwise the contemporary art still have worse disorderly impression of word of mouth and in the meaning of unsaturated state. Objectively, these ideas or symbolic expression right, and even the survival of the soil, as well as the political, economic, cultural and artistic development of logical inevitability. Politically, China's special political system in the process of groping forward, will inevitably encounter all sorts of problems, especially in the cultural revolution for ten years, and after the reform and opening to the outside world, under the new environment at home and abroad, including artists of all kinds of people in political thinking and reaction must be diverse variety. From an economic point of view, in the planned economy and the development of more than 30 years of reform and opening-up, China's exposed at the same time in the rapid development of the regional imbalance, the disparity between the rich and the poor, environmental issues, integrity and moral crisis, value criteria of chaos, and other issues. Such phenomenon is closely related to the livelihood of the people, for many Chinese contemporary artists are willing to and easy to choose. From cultural point of view, the past has always been the textbooks and teachers constantly strengthen the extensive and profound Chinese culture just declares the fault of the Chinese modern culture and missing, it is only after a lot of people grew up gradually understand the reason. Thousands of years of Chinese culture is extensive and profound, but also caused after the republic of China and China more pressure, can only have the most modern Chinese scholars and artists in the face of strong western culture and art academic a Q type of comfort themselves. The presence of diverse values in today's society, the commercial interests of the consumer era and the union of the instinct of a man, the public's perception of the cultural level, the lack of senior high culture or cultural forms, the limitations of social value guidance, art capital, the strength of the art voice is let our social cultural forms present with a chaotic and unable to self-knowledge, not consciously. This is contributed to today's contemporary art in the form of naive, bizarre, absurd and, lead to cultural personality self-deprecation, showing a gloss of money and sending out the money. Persistent in culture and art of humor is a strategy that skirt humorous nature is bustling in market speculation, in culture and art bear flag speculation is hypocrisy. The academic core of the purpose of contemporary art is not the economic level, it has no such obligation, has such power, advantage and function.

 

It is a art capital and generates a strong voice. In fact, western and different schools of art, is also a common background and based on industrial and post-industrial country its own cultural characteristics of this nation. Not to learn the art of is unthinkable, the art of China has its own unique schema specification and the aesthetic taste and standard. To the rebuilding discourse of Chinese contemporary art to achieve self, must base on its own traditional culture and art academic theory. Contemporary art is the growth of the western pluralistic semantics, grow up together with the European and American culture concept, during the period of the feudal state can catch factor, is divulged roots and rational. After a complete enlightenment and after modernism steering, their mechanism and developing the spirit of citizenship is already in place, so the contemporary art in the west a trend of fruition. In China, this condition is missing. Congenital deformity of is beyond the offset and the day after tomorrow as well, so a strong artistic influence is not confined to art, a lot of localization of the "import" often make a laughing stock of the legislation and bitterness, evolved into "Chinese characteristics". The deformation of the east and the west contrast has been pain by many scholars, the thought of system and national conditions and wary of the grafting of contemporary art. Many scholars have put forward on the current national quality and the macro background, everything is not optimistic. Way to go after all, how in such objective reality level, has become a necessary attention.

 

As an academic theory, the concept of contemporary art, it embodies the transformation of Chinese society in the culture, art space, involves the relationship between person and person. Through the work of art with a new attitude to look at life, society, and look at the value of the human cognition of the subjective world and objective world definition and thinking. Contemporary art you must concern the core values of a society, must pass through the critical spirit of consensus guidance, to art works from the social conditions for critical analysis, reflect the demands of the society, to attract the public's participation, advocating cultural diversity and multi-level social function of culture, therefore, an era, a country or a nation's contemporary art show in this era, the state and the degree of national democracy and freedom. Social and cultural characteristics, cultural differences in resources and policy conditions and produce different way, different shape and different connotation, rather than a certain artistic style and the connotation of strong artistic voice copy, nor a fashionable popular art or pure commercial art imitation and processing. Study of contemporary art from the macroscopic theory examines the objective requirements, the artistic creation methods of multiple Angle analysis, rather than unilateral unilateral academic action, alert to the academic waste. Theory, form of expression of contemporary art, creative language and the carrier of platform is not restricted, should inspire various styles with the same situation, but in China, presents an awkward shape, is monotonous and impoverishment. With other countries in the world of contemporary art flowers, fine frequency contrast is now, in China it is rare to see amazing, was simply contemporary works of art, with symbolic, memorial, declare it to narrative and pure forms of artistic language as the main body, in history has light, release a positive role.

People always say today's not kept up with the pace of development of material civilization, spiritual civilization which is not entirely attributable to system of art creation, on the one hand is the artist's creative level, on the other hand it has evolved into a big game of money circulation. Exhibition of contemporary art, they are billed as in propaganda and the name of contemporary art, but deep insights into the among them, the method is a way of contemporary art and operational mechanism, this kind of air have strong exhibition of contemporary art and artists label, give the impression that the artist's smooth implementation plan or not is the first point. Need of contemporary art curator, but this limitation and effect is "exhibition", "exhibition" is not the purpose. This kind of work at the biennale, festival and on site project, hold "Chinese contemporary art", in addition to the dimension size and space outspread sex strong artistic voice, we can't see anything of this kind of art and contemporary art. Particularly when contemporary art in China is becoming more and more be financialization, vogue and media everything, we must pay attention to this kind of artistic value provided for shaping a growing civil society have a positive meaning and value, or say, they're just in a high-profile to himself, in the name of art's repeated complete artistic individual vanity fair logic.

Yuan Chu Chen Contemporary art market is a severe test

Contemporary art market is a severe test

 

Since the may fourth movement, the Chinese fine arts has been a hold, a radical. Advocating the spirit of art to observe the traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy collectors don't casually follow something alien, and contemporary art circle, the problems existing in the traditional art to innovation, to learn the west, to focus on the present moment. Debate has not stopped, art world never short of tit-for-tat discussion, with weibo that large network platform, after discussing rise to scold, art circle who are not a vegetarian. The contradiction between the two is just formed in one hundred to a literary tension, only there are both traditional and contemporary art is hundred flowers of good cultural phenomenon. Appear on both sides the outcome, but through the theory of "fly" and "traitors", the theory of "cyber-squatting" attack of the contemporary art world, from war on the quantity and quality of debate is lesser, become the most injured role.

 

As the contemporary art market, the test also follow. Let a person didn't expect, however, in the auction market after the bubble burst, the ullens selling work remains strong contemporary art circle, bear the biggest punch from the customs. "Contemporary art for the sake of a few smelly money flattering, cynicism west!" "Calligraphy and painting collection brainwashed people in the deep!" ...... These violent, offensive words was published on twitter, the and contemporary art of Chinese painting and calligraphy collection circle weibo "as" has become the most lively art event this summer, and climax in recent days, a total of nearly a century artists, art, media, art critic in the wars. Although at present, the battle with the microblog hot lines to the transfer of the Olympic Games, but it still produce finish questions, such as the art market "conspiracy theory", the artistic value judgment, etc., to view the guest know the circle is a vivid teaching material of Chinese art. Many art transport companies "questioning", the director of the customs. This is not an isolated incident, because art transport company is the artist, works of art, agent, auction houses, collectors of chain link, is extremely important. Sure enough, soon the media news broke, there are at least five or six art dealers and collectors in the overseas purchase of costly artwork was seized by customs, art dealer for the art was arrested for tax evasion amount is huge, the Shanghai said after a major collector in the customs investigation all pay taxes... Because the investigation involved work more for contemporary art, has become Chinese contemporary art circle network hot topic. Contemporary art unknown "bureau", "hidden rules" laid bare triggered the calligraphy and painting circles to the applause of the contemporary art scene.

 

Why will become targets of contemporary art? Actually from contemporary art 2006 heating up, there is a lot of people stand out among jie of contemporary art, that Chinese contemporary art is made for the western contemporary art international export products. Booming of Chinese contemporary art has the art hype group do bureau, for art prices are artificially, most of the work for transaction is actually false deal. Events and the customs, no doubt, be a strong indication of these arguments. Time painting collection circles have, they are of the same tone, fierce criticism of contemporary art circle "ugly", "flattering" and "bureau" behavior, think that China's booming of contemporary art is roughly the same class: a daze, is dumb, the sick, the era of picture is this China? At all from ideological negation in Chinese contemporary art painting and calligraphy collection circle thrown out more and more, and then the contemporary art circle is not to be outdone, calligraphy and painting collectors for the powerful counterattack, fierce criticism of traditional collectors of contemporary life. The debate also into melee. Both the gap from where? Differences between the two sides have always existed, mainly because of their value orientation judgment of art is not the same, the debate is under both parties hold different idea in art.

 

 

 

As the contemporary art market, the test also follow. Let a person didn't expect, however, in the auction market after the bubble burst, the ullens selling work remains strong contemporary art circle, bear the biggest punch from the customs. "Contemporary art for the sake of a few smelly money flattering, cynicism west!" "Calligraphy and painting collection brainwashed people in the deep!" ...... These violent, offensive words was published on twitter, the and contemporary art of Chinese painting and calligraphy collection circle weibo "as" has become the most lively art event this summer, and climax in recent days, a total of nearly a century artists, art, media, art critic in the wars. Although at present, the battle with the microblog hot lines to the transfer of the Olympic Games, but it still produce finish questions, such as the art market "conspiracy theory", the artistic value judgment, etc., to view the guest know the circle is a vivid teaching material of Chinese art. Many art transport companies "questioning", the director of the customs. This is not an isolated incident, because art transport company is the artist, works of art, agent, auction houses, collectors of chain link, is extremely important.

Because the investigation involved work more for contemporary art, has become Chinese contemporary art circle network hot topic. Contemporary art unknown "bureau", "hidden rules" laid bare triggered the calligraphy and painting circles to the applause of the contemporary art scene. In the chaos of the wars, some with a calm voice is especially precious thought.

 

Most industry insiders believe that the contemporary art scene is not really so chaos as the legend. In contemporary art circle, there are a few people were affected by the western deep, there are some unhealthy tendencies, and a few contemporary artists to ignore the traditional inheritance, this is to solve. But can't because of the practice of a few people discredit the contemporary art circle, the circle as a whole is still relatively healthy, so just can have so much government support, contemporary art biennale because it is to adapt to The Times development. Traditional art circle, of course, also can't completely sure. If you don't innovate only copy the traditional, that is against the tradition. Not only innovation, culture will collapse, only inheritance without innovation, culture will be complacent, weakening. The two art circle has reason to exist, the lack of any a part is not allowed, but the two circles in addition to carry forward the result, also want to solve the problems. After a long argument, people seem to have forgotten the starting point of events: what customs punch has much impact on the contemporary art? Customs affair although reaction is very big, but its influence, after all, limited because most of the painter's creation is honestly. After all, only a handful of violation. Customs's impact is limited, but the influence of the controversy is long, now is far from over.

Yuan Chu Chen In the fine art of democratized

 

Yuan Chu Chen

In the fine art of democratized

 

With the development of economy and the rise of industrial civilization, the spread of art forms and ways are also great changes have taken place. Movies, concerts, painting and calligraphy exhibition, popular fiction, etc., these commercial art behavior characteristic is obvious, they are no longer just simply in order to meet the spirit of the senior people enjoy is the main purpose, and to obtain more economic benefits is also the art to the key factor. Artists through the problem of the thinking of the abstract or representational form of art, art is life, because there is another world in these works, an artist questioned his own world alone spirit or soul. While the world is not a vacuum in the world and because of the artist's thought, by the great experience of thinking always represents the artist in society and artists as sensitive people's thought and questioning, therefore, the viewer resonance and works of art, touched by the work, because art is actually the shadow is the shadow of a group of the society. When commodity economy and the development and market is complete, the relationship between art and market are very close. No matter what, the meaning of art and the artist always exists in the correlation between reality, history, tradition and, although we don't have to say economic law mandatory dominates the artistic idea and behavior.

Art, art is closely connected with the society and the environment, is undeniable in the era of commodity, artists are subject to social utility atmosphere, tempted to drive to promote the pressure of social economy, strive to make their own ideas with the public world and economic law, is also very natural, this commodity economy highly developed society today, some works of art is not become popular after production, it is popular to produce, in order to win the public, to gain market effect and commercial interests. Jiang Zhaohe's knave figure seen farmers displaced the suffering of life, feel the infinite sympathy for people's life at that time, this also is the author's feeling and thinking of social reality. When we face the work of art, we may doubt, may even have doubt on the concept of art. In the present this as "postmodern" society, art is "postmodern", is "postmodern" concept. Artists are no longer interested in the sort of grand political subjects, no longer pay attention to how our society is developing, people how to life, everything is self-involved, artist focuses on the private life, is its own unique thinking, there are a lot of life in today's society degenerated and some of the younger generation of erosion life meaningless things.

When artists of the world is more and more narrow, art is no longer can be simple to understand, in the art of performance artists of the current caused by the lack of mainstream ideology to guide the social mix, the youth of the depressed, confused mood and anxiety and deep thinking, these feelings and ideas is leap is extremely deep, personal, because maybe only as a living person has no intention to consider and realize these subtle and profound social change, also cannot understand the artist hidden ideology in the works of art, it also led to the modern art cannot be accepted and approved for the society. Different social period of artists of the art of the world is so different, when we see if we live in a society today, found that the original in today's world is so made that originally unprecedented pursuit of material and spiritual emptiness of life, led to the development of the society "absurd" and "nothing". Art to find the subject of performance, from life and artists to seek inspiration in my life, the artist must face the society, to participate in society, and to generalize the technique to the society and express their views, so artists of the world or from the society of his, or on their community a high degree of thinking.

High art to the civilian and commercialization has become an unstoppable trend, the impact of this trend for the development of art can be said to be very complicated, need to have a dialectical point of view to treat this trend. But social influence on art never so strong as it is today. This may be the cause of the development of human civilization to a height. Society is developing forward in, one of the arts as a social ideology inevitably affected by its product, because of the change of social influence and lead to art form, and artistic form extremely subject matter content changes from one side also reflects the change of the society. All about art and social relationships, in fact is the art and social relationship as an opportunity of discourse mode and methodology of the debate. Why is a kind of cultural studies more accords with the practice of China's cultural interpretation? It's first get from what is culture research.

Generic in the sense of cultural studies, as a specialized term, especially in the 1950 s is produced in the UK field of study, the first formally established research institutions is Birmingham contemporary culture research center (CCCS). As a research field, the discipline nature of cultural studies, the research objects and research methods are variable, which is its charm, cultural studies is a kind of discourse construction, it doesn't have a single origin, although in the first time it was named the cultural studies, some of us is to have a certain position, it is always a system composed of the construction of uncertainty. Trajectory, it has many many people once and is through these trails into the cultural research field. It is formed by a series of different construction methods and theory of position, and all these positions in the debate. Break from the culture of the fixed qualitative theory, cultural studies opens up for himself a is different from the essence of socialism and is different from the essentialism of road of the research, it is keep the distance with postmodernism and deconstructivism, cultural studies is not advocated no essence, but no autocracism essence. Cultural studies are in the open theory field of vision at the same time, there is still position and value measurement. Art is a language that is more common than rational argument, there is no art society, without no society of art, art is the outcome of an ideology of human beings, all human society and the environment the brand mark, on the one hand, art highlights and performance with the change and development of the society, but on the other hand, society is ever-present in a subtle influence on the evolution and development of art. Therefore, we can say that art exists in with the social development is inseparable. Art is a kind of image reflects social life, this is just a kind of philosophical reflection, an understanding of sociology. Art if left the existence of society, the art would be tantamount to leave their survival soil, lost it to maintain the source of life and the roots.

Art exists in society, it performs the social life, deduce the social development trend, and society is constantly provide art materials for art, also only in the human society environment art development will continue to exist and enriched. A certain social political influence on the artist's concept is most significant, but we can't ignore the other factors in the social environment, such as economy, culture, customs and geographical environment, etc. Economy is the important measure of a society prosperity or not. Economic prosperity will bring huge material wealth to the society, so as to improve people's living standards, people only to meet their own clothing, food and clothing problem, just can have higher spiritual pursuit. So is artist, the artist's life can be divided into two layers: one is the material life and spiritual life or soul. Material life is food and clothing live line, spiritual life is art.

In the economic and cultural prosperity of tang dynasty period, our poet is achieving positive, the poetry is majestic, such as li bai's poems, we can always feel the grand momentum of datang in the poem and brilliant achievements, it is because of the poet's life in the material prosperity of the environment, no worries about the poor, only with flourishing life. In the late tang dynasty, the social unrest, economic decline, to see what the poet is desolate and sad, displaced people's court of corruption, thus makes the du fu sorrow and helpless. Different geography and customs culture has a certain influence on the artist's personality. Overall, a northerner disposition optimistic, southerners character is exquisite. Open-minded character of the northern artists always love to create the north style works of art, artists tend to southern delicate depiction and description. So-called northern landscape pie "jing (hao) off (8)" and the southern landscape "dong (source) giant (ran)" is because of its geographical location divided between its represented by the artistic style.

Social part shaped the artist's personality, and the artist's personality in the unconscious determines its writing style. Artists to create good work and let the viewer to accept work is never out of society at that time. "Isolated, and the relationship of art no longer life, no matter how it is charming, always want to be a useless toy, is doomed to lose its humanistic value. The artist's social is self-evident, the task of the artist is eternal, but the artist himself is forward in time to the music, so they can't from society, can't abandon reality. With = artists of the world, of course, has great relation with the social. Art originates from reality, higher than the reality, so no matter how artists and bold and unrestrained unruly, devote in art creation, performance, using the whole soul artists of the world will still have their own society. A good image of the art must come from the artist's deep thinking and struggling to explore, and the thinking must be seen in our daily life, feeling, or is inspired by the present life and the deeper thinking of human to the life and to the whole universe.

The artist is the producer of spiritual product, the final results of the spiritual production - art, is to enter the world we live in, to communicate with certain groups in society, to realize the value of the value of works of art and the artist. This is the art and social relations. Art produced in the specific social background, and ultimately through the artist's refining and processing in a special form of expression and return to the society. Through painting art development history of page we can always find its place in the shadow of society, feel the spirit of the culture and people's lives, art reflects the society, the social impact on the art. Society constantly moving forward, so that it can always constantly for artists, art supplies of raw materials, to produce more update art form and content of art. Art and social relations since the emergence of the art has never is not likely to rupture, is the research on the relation between art and social theories and schools of thought contend, influences and decides the people understanding of art and social patterns and Angle. Today, when it comes to art into the society, we must mention the relationship between art and market. To enter the market has a long history of art, is not a market economy is born in art market phenomenon. In China in the Ming and qing dynasties era, there is one of the yangzhou eight eccentrics of banqiao for his paintings "RunGe", this is a typical example of art to enter the market more examples of before that there are not too mature.

The background contradiction and the localization crisis of contemporary art

 

The future of Chinese contemporary art it is difficult to see a new idea. In view of the contradiction of Chinese contemporary art background and local crisis, on the research thinking and practice exploration must be repositioned, breaking the cyclical stand-off, otherwise the contemporary art still have worse disorderly impression of word of mouth and in the meaning of unsaturated state. Objectively, these ideas or symbolic expression right, and even the survival of the soil, as well as the political, economic, cultural and artistic development of logical inevitability. Politically, China's special political system in the process of groping forward, will inevitably encounter all sorts of problems, especially in the cultural revolution for ten years, and after the reform and opening to the outside world, under the new environment at home and abroad, including artists of all kinds of people in political thinking and reaction must be diverse variety. From an economic point of view, in the planned economy and the development of more than 30 years of reform and opening-up, China's exposed at the same time in the rapid development of the regional imbalance, the disparity between the rich and the poor, environmental issues, integrity and moral crisis, value criteria of chaos, and other issues. Such phenomenon is closely related to the livelihood of the people, for many Chinese contemporary artists are willing to and easy to choose.

 

It is a art capital and generates a strong voice. In fact, western and different schools of art, is also a common background and based on industrial and post-industrial country its own cultural characteristics of this nation. Not to learn the art of is unthinkable, the art of China has its own unique schema specification and the aesthetic taste and standard. To the rebuilding discourse of Chinese contemporary art to achieve self, must base on its own traditional culture and art academic theory. Contemporary art is the growth of the western pluralistic semantics, grow up together with the European and American culture concept, during the period of the feudal state can catch factor, is divulged roots and rational. After a complete enlightenment and after modernism steering, their mechanism and developing the spirit of citizenship is already in place, so the contemporary art in the west a trend of fruition. In China, this condition is missing. Congenital deformity of is beyond the offset and the day after tomorrow as well, so a strong artistic influence is not confined to art, a lot of localization of the "import" often make a laughing stock of the legislation and bitterness, evolved into "Chinese characteristics". The deformation of the east and the west contrast has been pain by many scholars, the thought of system and national conditions and wary of the grafting of contemporary art. Many scholars have put forward on the current national quality and the macro background, everything is not optimistic. Way to go after all, how in such objective reality level, has become a necessary attention. From cultural point of view, the past has always been the textbooks and teachers constantly strengthen the extensive and profound Chinese culture just declares the fault of the Chinese modern culture and missing, it is only after a lot of people grew up gradually understand the reason.

 

Thousands of years of Chinese culture and profound to the republic of China and after China caused a lot of pressure, make modern Chinese scholars and artists in the face of strong western culture and art academic a Q type of comfort themselves. The presence of diverse values in today's society, the commercial interests of the consumer era and the union of the instinct of a man, the public's perception of the cultural level, the lack of senior high culture or cultural forms, the limitations of social value guidance, art capital, the strength of the art voice is let our social cultural forms present with a chaotic and unable to self-knowledge, not consciously. This is contributed to today's contemporary art in the form of naive, bizarre, absurd and, lead to cultural personality self-deprecation, showing a gloss of money and sending out the money. Persistent in culture and art of humor is a strategy that skirt humorous nature is bustling in market speculation, in culture and art bear flag speculation is hypocrisy. The academic core of the purpose of contemporary art is not the economic level, it has no such obligation, has such power, advantage and function. Chinese mainland academic production, are entering a cycle, but also into a cycle of criticism. In recent years, the resulting discussion and criticism times. The rich penetrating criticism, hit the nail on the head, even. But, unfortunately, many critical articles, outraged, criticism, skin is only, not to the purpose, to point out some floating is not a rare phenomenon, but always can't scratch itchy, misses the point, artificially create a faction "full moon in the water of the air." Is this really what is the winding path leading to a secluded spot, really have so deep, let a person cannot close observation, depth reveal? , including the ministry of education officials have accused the academics and style of study, accused the current academic too "impetuous", request strictly avoid impetuous, sink down. All seems to be problems on economist, is our lack of academic discipline.

 

In the academic construction of ills, is more than economist conscience necessities, "impetuous" is more than two words can be summarized. As an academic theory, the concept of contemporary art, it embodies the transformation of Chinese society in the culture, art space, involves the relationship between person and person. Through the work of art with a new attitude to look at life, society, and look at the value of the human cognition of the subjective world and objective world definition and thinking. Contemporary art you must concern the core values of a society, must pass through the critical spirit of consensus guidance, to art works from the social conditions for critical analysis, reflect the demands of the society, to attract the public's participation, advocating cultural diversity and multi-level social function of culture, therefore, an era, a country or a nation's contemporary art show in this era, the state and the degree of national democracy and freedom. Social and cultural characteristics, cultural differences in resources and policy conditions and produce different way, different shape and different connotation, rather than a certain artistic style and the connotation of strong artistic voice copy, nor a fashionable popular art or pure commercial art imitation and processing. Study of contemporary art from the macroscopic theory examines the objective requirements, the artistic creation methods of multiple Angle analysis, rather than unilateral unilateral academic action, alert to the academic waste. Theory, form of expression of contemporary art, creative language and the carrier of platform is not restricted, should inspire various styles with the same situation, but in China, presents an awkward shape, is monotonous and impoverishment. With other countries in the world of contemporary art flowers, fine frequency contrast is now, in China it is rare to see amazing, was simply contemporary works of art, with symbolic, memorial, declare it to narrative and pure forms of artistic language as the main body, in history has light, release a positive role.

 

In the nineties, China people's horizon and the amount of information is dried up, with the individual consciousness awakening and the degree of deepening reform and opening up, people need visual condensed to naturalization presence and fill the art layout of the mind. People always say today's not kept up with the pace of development of material civilization, spiritual civilization which is not entirely attributable to system of art creation, on the one hand is the artist's creative level, on the other hand it has evolved into a big game of money circulation. Exhibition of contemporary art, they are billed as in propaganda and the name of contemporary art, but deep insights into the among them, the method is a way of contemporary art and operational mechanism, this kind of air have strong exhibition of contemporary art and artists label, give the impression that the artist's smooth implementation plan or not is the first point. Need of contemporary art curator, but this limitation and effect is "exhibition", "exhibition" is not the purpose. This kind of work at the biennale, festival and on site project, hold "Chinese contemporary art", in addition to the dimension size and space outspread sex strong artistic voice, we can't see anything of this kind of art and contemporary art. Particularly when contemporary art in China is becoming more and more be financialization, vogue and media everything, we must pay attention to this kind of artistic value provided for shaping a growing civil society have a positive meaning and value, or say, they're just in a high-profile to himself, in the name of art's repeated complete artistic individual vanity fair logic. We can't because of a long duration and exists in the space art, consider it as a contemporary art. The contemporary art academic theories involved in the experiments to explore may have a certain value, but too high profile significantly overstated, make the mess of art more fell. On the connotation of cohesion and take it for granted why academic disability blindly.

The academic exploration of positive significance

 

A double description of contemporary art in broad sense and narrow sense is a very common way of defining. But broad wide exactly where, how narrow narrow, there is not fixed, often broad and broad, narrow and more narrow, under any one definition for on its circumference is narrow, relative to the circumference is generalized. The most general theory is that all deposits and in the exhibition space form of art is contemporary art, such as architecture, film, musical theater, performance art, public facilities, products, etc., are overrun, this view is the understanding of contemporary art is very poor, only the space art and mechanical composition together; Still have a kind of generalized, began to emphasize the contemporary and effectiveness, to the contemporary art as a special phenomenon is studied as independent, but it is not constrained by the specific form and expression; Have determined the positioning of contemporary art in art and design art category, emphasizes the material, return to visual art shape. Contemporary art is closer to a kind of intellectuals in the middle of the social space for the value judgment of the whole society and spiritual expression, this aspect is often a critical opinion. The notion of broad sense and narrow sense have been out of date, both confrontation shows the economist is not sensitive to the current concept of contemporary art development and the progress of the disregard of social reality.

 

Chinese scholars for academic exploration of contemporary art artistic genes determine its necessarily positive, positive means to get rid of the academic theory of stereotypes, with radical on concept, that is to say, art direction of narrow sense and academic theory must be go, must be clear and pointed, refused to confusion and no quarter degree "climb relatives", only then could produce high quality academic function in the sense of overall value and social cognition, to live up to its own mission and purpose. The main reason, there are several, one is to fit a certain period of political and ideological propaganda, under the premise of this, the so-called directivity and critical is impossible. Another kind is not sufficient research and argumentation, just use a inertial thinking, to a certain time nodes or festivals, held a retrospective or case. There are some association to to type classification by artists or group exhibitions. Because almost every time is temporary exhibition, so the planning and preparation time is very urgent.

 

West for two to three years of prophase investigation, research and accumulation, and we only about 1/10 or 1/20 of the time. The so-called fire makes sweet malt, so fast? Time factor, but also the funds investment. A lot of stakeholders investment of the construction of the museum, only consider the cost of building a house, as for the collection, exhibition, such as operating entirely out of place in the consideration. Therefore, as for the relevant government departments, cannot be art exhibition noisy and confused, the superficial prosperity should see behind it exists many problems, seriously consider how to on the source, planning, supervision on effective control and guidance. We can blame that a group of artists in techniques on imitation or even copy the western masters, but cannot deny their history in order to break through the ice courage to explore and art. Such as a representative of the first generation of abstract painting after China's reform and opening up, ding yi - painting "ten shows" series, what does not seem to be innovative, but the value of his is in again has been interrupted blood relation of Chinese abstract painting. It should be said that many artists like his attitude toward the artistic creation is sincere. Chinese scholars for academic exploration of contemporary art, there are two outstanding characteristics. First of all, each scholar from one's own knowledge structure and research fields for academic theory, combined with their own professional interest in and express itself has no problems, but mostly to an abrupt end, the beginning, always biased and amateur talk about feeling impression to the person; Second, a large number of concentrated around the perspective of sociology, politics, culture and philosophy and so on to talk about, there is little analysis of aesthetics and art ontology, and overall careful rigorous induction. These theories is a sense, it is to be reckoned with, but the problem is that we are talking about too much! Everyone speak very reasonable, but it's too such as sociology, politics, culture and philosophy truth is that there is no aesthetic and art truth, not practical to solve the problem. The current China's realistic situation, need great macro theory, need more specific academic theoretical research of art ontology and have real and active guidance, the landing of art. Before the capital has not been involved in the 1990 s in the field of art, is chosen for a show or solo exhibitions for an artist creation ability and level of a kind of recognition and affirmation. The exhibition on the academic and artistic quality, the exhibition is a requirement and the threshold. Even when the exhibition as a whole is no more point to academic thinking, basic it is a good work together, also is to look at at least ensure the exhibition and able to bear or endure look. Capital after intervention, fundamentally changed the original pattern of exhibition and exhibition mechanism. When we haven't had time to rejoice, for the exhibition mode is more and more diversified art exhibitions are transmuted into a commercial marketing means.

 

Art exhibitions are present on the phenomenon of a kind of art, is a kind of artistic spirit of inquiry, is a kind of artistic direction of academic theoretical exploration in the future. So if lost their own academic art exhibition, lost PiPanLi of culture, art exhibition to commercial marketing results also can't reach. Eager to ordinary goods that simplification of marketing to operate a pick up an art exhibition, the results are the low level of repetition. And some charity art exhibition held situation is not optimistic, it involves more ideas and consciousness. Although, charity art exhibition held, there is no commercial considerations and stress, but for the moment, the purpose of art exhibitions is relatively backward, still is a kind of reporting and display. Then hang up the picture, the wag of the good work, it all seems to be an art exhibition. About "plagiarism" criticism of contemporary art of China was once very popular, this view, with the F4 (zhang xiaogang, wang anyi, fang lijun and yue minjun) as the representative of Chinese contemporary artists, creation is given priority to with political subject matter, technique to imitate the "plagiarism") of (a bit tough said western expressionism in the 60 s or pop art gimmick, work form ugly, exaggeration and even bloody, ideas aiming at ugliness and deconstruction. Some artists in the late is repeating itself, showed no art pursuit and innovative spirit of transcending oneself. There is no lack of among them some question naming names. Said such as zhang xiaogang, the image of the "family" is reminiscent of the Belgian surrealist painter Rene Margaret. Wang guangyi political pop series is obvious from the American pop art founder Andy warhol's ideas; Zhang Huan composite materials, CAI fireworks works can be found in the new German expressionist painter Anselm kiefer shadow; Mr. Liu's painting is to imitate is known as the the greatest painter Lucian Freud, and so on.

 

For spiritual confusion and give up the contemporary art of China has been in addition to selling political symbol and "the spirit" the Chinese image art speculation, academic theory seems to have can't find what promote art forward effective motivation. However, the lack of spiritual stick to one-sided symbolic language will inevitably to repeat and dried up. In this state, the right to review and look at the tradition, draw nutrition and inspiration from the traditional, carry forward the traditional culture as well as academic theoretical way to own needs of contemporary art, has become some of the suffering consciousness of artists and theorists have art consensus.
